Using the Raspberry Pi for a temperature sensing project

A new experience for me this week – my first request for coding help! Someone from my fledgling list of followers have requested help with code for a temperature sensing project using a Pt100 sensor and a converter.

I don’t have this equipment yet so have endeavoured to find the answer through a good ol’ fashioned spate of web searching and crowd sourcing. Luckily I have found the following information…

Here’s a link to a thread on the Raspberry Pi forum about using the sensor in question with a RTD-to-Digital converter.

And this is a blog post by Raspberry Pi Spy detailing code for using a digital thermometer with a Pi, which I’m sure could be easily adapted depending on the sensor being used.

Finally, here is another handy thread on the Adafruit customer service forum all about using the same equipment for a nanobrewery! All useful information that is still applicable for this reader’s project.

I hope this is all helpful for the reader, and anyone else looking for information on this particular project. I wish I could give a more hands-on response but am lacking in resources at this moment in time!

Let me know how you get on 🙂
