Me Temperature Sensor-Waterproof (DS18B20)



This is the temperature sensor based on chip DS18B20 consisting of a waterproof probe and long wire shape, which is perfect for immersive temperature detection or detecting something far away. The DS18B20 provides 9 to 12-bit (configurable) temperature readings over a 1-Wire interface, so that only one wire (and ground) need to be connected from a central microprocessor. The original one includes three wires inside, this one is modified to fit in a 3-pin connector so that you can use with the Makeblock Me Adapter. There is no soldering required to connect to the Me BaseBoard just like the picture below.

Please note that while the sensor is good up to 125°C, the cable which is jacketed in PVC will be damaged easily, so it's suggested to keep it under 100°C.

The Makeblock Me series modules are designed to be simple to wire and easy to program. The controller is compatible with Arduino and each Me module comes with a Arduino library for easy programming.
