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!
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!
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!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
