These are often used for air conditioners, water lines, and other places where they can get damp. The PVC coating of the wires is good up to 105 °C so this isn’t good for very hot stuff.
We even toss in an additional 1% 10K resistor which you can use as calibration or for a resistor divider.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Would this work for the chumby hacker board LiPo sense line?
mills, anything with pvc-covered wire will have a 105 degree max usage. Its a property of PVC not of the thermistor 🙁 we are working on getting a teflon-wired temp sensor so you can measure up to 250 degC
tz, good question. depends on what the processor’s looking for in terms of the resistance levels. you’d have to compare what the cutoff resistances are to the table (there is no ‘standard’ thermistor)
hey email me if anyone needs a function fit (a mathematical function) for the look up table!

rei, that would be cool, please post it here. would save us some matlabbin 🙂
From wikipedia I pulled this equation:
where rinf=R0 e^(-B/T0)
This thermistor has a B value of 3950, R0=10^4 and T0=298.15
