Temperature sensor – A trip to Steinhart-Hart, Gaussian elimination and thermistors

Thermistor-Temperature-Sensor

Temperature sensor – A trip to Steinhart-Hart, Gaussian elimination and thermistors @ skytee.

I made a thermistor-based, water-resistant temperature sensor to be used with a micro controller. Here I document the process on how to get the thermistor calibration data.

Recently, my friend w0z visited after 28c3 and we ended up checking out Segor, a brick-and-mortar electronics shop in Berlin. It’s to me like a candy shop is to kids. Among other things, athermistor module picked my interest, mostly because I had never used one before.

The thermistor module I got came as a thermistor and an op-amp on a PCB. I hooked it up to an Arduino’s analog input pin and sure enough I could see the input data change when I exposed the sensor to warm air.

A really good summary of how to use thermistors and solve the Steinhart-Hart equation.


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
