Adafruit Temperature Sensor Guides for Raspberry Pi & BeagleBone Black


Three new guides added to the learning system for using popular temperature sensors with the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black:

TMP006 Temperature Sensor Python Library

Are you looking for an easy way to measure the temperature of something without having to attach a sensor directly to it?  Consider using a non-contact temperature sensor like the TMP006!  This sensor reads the infra-red radiation, or heat, emitted from an object and can be easily read over an I2C connection.  With the TMP006 Python library you can now use the TMP006 non-contact temperature sensor with your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project!

MAX31855 Thermocouple Sensor Python Library

Do you need fast and accurate temperature measurements over a wide range of values in a project?  Consider using a thermocouple and the MAX31855 thermocouple amplifier!  A thermocouple uses the Seebeck effect to turn differences in temperature into very small voltages which the MAX31855 can read and make available over an SPI connection.  Using the MAX31855 Python library you can add a thermocouple temperature sensor to your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project!

MCP9808 Temperature Sensor Python Library

Do you need accurate temperature measurements in a project?  Consider using the MCP9808 precision temperature sensor with up to 0.25 degrees Celsius accuracy!  The MCP9808 will read temperature and make it available over an I2C connection.  With the MCP9808 Python library you can now use the MCP9808 precision temperature sensor with your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project!
