A Digital Thermometer Hygrometer With Analog Displays

It seems that you can’t visit to a microcontroller website without seeing a digital thermometer/hygrometer build of some kind. After all, it is pretty easy to build and at the same time quite useful as well. In this post, I will show you yet another thermometer/hygrometer build. But instead of using an LCD or 7 segment display for the output, I decided to go retro, using two “needles” to display the temperature and humidity readings instead.

Temperature and Humidity Logging Over Ethernet — II

Last week, I discussed the construction of a network-capable temperature and humidity sensor using SHT21 and ENC28J60 with an ATmega328P microcontroller. In this post, I will show the results obtained so far and the techniques used to chart the data. Continue reading ‘Temperature and Humidity Logging Over Ethernet — II’ »

Temperature and Humidity Logging Over Ethernet — I

I did a project on temperature/humidity logging a couple of years ago. In that project I logged the temperature and humidity readings in my basement lab over the course of a year. One issue with the approach I took back then was that the data could not be observed in real time because the logged data were written to an SD card and could only be retrieved once the logging process was done.

Reading SHT21 Using TI MSP430 LaunchPad

SHT21 is a neat little temperature and humidity sensor from Sensirion and I have used it in a couple of my Arduino projects before. Given that the Vcc is 3 V for these sensors, interfacing with a 5V ATMega chip would require an I2C level translator (or alternatively, you could run the MCU at a lower clock frequency and use the lower Vcc). Since TI’s MSP430G2 series MCU runs at lower voltages natively, it is actually a lot cleaner to interface these 3V powered I2C devices. Continue reading ‘Reading SHT21 Using TI MSP430 LaunchPad’ »

A Dual Temperature Display With Humidity Measurement

I built a digital thermometer a couple of weeks ago. This thermometer uses an LM19 sensor calibrated for measuring a wide temperature range (-55 – 130 Celsius, -67 – 266 Fahrenheit) for outdoor temperature measurement and an SHT21 digital thermometer with humidity measurement for indoor use.

Temperature/Humidity Data Logger — Trial Run

I built a rather generic I2C data logger a few weeks back. As I mentioned in my earlier posts, it can be used to log data from almost any I2C slave devices with relatively little code modification. Continue reading ‘Temperature/Humidity Data Logger — Trial Run’ »
