How do I interface to an old digital meat thermometer probe? It has a stem with a wire and a mini-plug on the end?

The stem is stuck into the meat and is left in the oven. The wire is then brought out of the oven and connected to the display. I would like to replace the display with an AVR micrprocessor, but I do not know, or how to find out, what kind of signal is at the end of the plug. Has anyone played around with these and can share their experience?

Indoor Thermometer - Check temp at home while at work

Hello! I sure hope this qualifies as a Tech category! I'm looking to build (or possibly buy) an indoor digital thermometer that transmits the temperature information to my computer over the internet. The goal is to be able to check the temperature of my house while I'm at work, or anyplace else with internet access. Do any of you know of a simple way to build this? Has it been done before? With temperatures here in Washington DC breaking records this week (over 100F) I'm worried about my pets health at home, and more worried that the a/c will go out while I'm away and I'd never know. This could result in the death of my pets, and I'd love to be able to be informed in time if something were to happen and the temperature rose suddenly (or dipped, in winter). Help in the right direction is greatly appreciated!

Talking Meat Thermometer - Circuit wizard help

Hi everyone  I am doing a project in university and i wanted to make a talking thermometer which told a blind person what temperature the meat was.  At the very best i wanted it to have different functions for chicken, beef and pork. (So they can cook a medium steak and then a safe temperature for chicken, although the temp for chicken and pork is above that of a beef so maybe i can fit it into one chip. i dunno) I have to make the PCB myself so i was just looking for any help on how i may do it (maybe a mix of a home made pcb and arduino) Any any tips or advice i may need  Thanks  Michael

Cen-Tech Thermometer to PC Hacking

I just got my new $30 Cen-Tech thermometer from Harbor Freight and it's begging to be hacked. I would love to be able to use this thermometer as part of a closed loop system to control a hot plate for soldering purposes. Just inside the battery compartment is a header with four pins. They nicely labeled the pins on the silk screen. I'm probing on "Gnd" and "Tx" pins. I used a MAX232 level shifter to convert the TTL output to RS232 so I could connect to my PC. I then ran the attached simply Python app that dumps the data packets to the console. Each packet has 25 characters and repeats at about 3Hz. My question is, how would one go about decoding the data packets? Some numbers seem constant while other move. I'm hoping the data format is obvious to someone. Note, the reading on the display was around 68.8 degrees F when this data was collected. The readings did jump plus/minus a few tenths while collecting. Any ideas? Thanks, Jim Console Output: 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 10 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 81 FF 15 07 A9 12 F6 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 47 33 15 10 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 81 FF 15 07 A9 12 F6 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 47 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 12 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 84 FF 15 07 A9 12 F8 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4E 33 15 13 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 85 FF 15 07 A9 12 F9 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 51 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 09 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 81 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F1 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 35 33 15 0B 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 84 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F3 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 3C 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0B 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 84 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F3 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 3C

Why doesn't my Arduino 'secret thermometer' print to LCD? Answered

[Solved] I've had my Arduino a few days now and have found this code: code.google.com/p/tinkerit/wiki/SecretThermometer. I have tried modifying it with a few basic LCD commands, which I have had working with a 16x2 LCD. I want it to print the temperature from "readTemp()", divide by 10000 (to get it in degrees C) and print to the LCD (with the "C" character after it). This is what I have so far: #include LiquidCrystal lcd(7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2); long readTemp() { long result; ADMUX = _BV(REFS1) | _BV(REFS0) | _BV(MUX3); delay(2); ADCSRA |= _BV(ADSC); while (bit_is_set(ADCSRA,ADSC)); result = ADCL; result |= ADCH result = (result - 125) * 1075; return result; } int temp = (readTemp()/10000, DEC); void setup(){ lcd.clear(); lcd.begin(16, 2); lcd.print("Thermuino"); delay(2000); lcd.clear(); } void loop(){ lcd.setCursor(3, 0); lcd.print("C"); lcd.setCursor(0, 0); lcd.print(temp); // is this where the problem is? delay(1000); } But it does not work, I have checked all I/O lines,  different code etc. and they all work fine. So It must be a mistake in my programming. All I get is row 0 of the LCD full black all characters along it. I hope I have provided enough information for you to help :-D [EDIT] After removing the "int temp = (readTemp()/10000, DEC);" section and changing "lcd.print(temp);" to "lcd.print(readTemp()/10000);"  it now works! :-D It prints a correct temperature to the LCD and refreshes it.

ICL7107 and LM35 based 7-segment thermometer

I'm trying to create a digital centigrade thermometer based on an ICL7107 3 1/2 digit 7-segment driver/ADC and an LM35 linear centigrade temperature sensor but I'm having a few problems. There doesn't seem to be much online about using the ICL7107 with a LM35 and most of the schematics available are for volt meters, but that's not a massive problem as the LM35 gives 10mV/C linearly. I'm just trying to go based on the few schematics I have found but I'm wondering about the supporting components for the LM35 which seem a little too simple. The first schematic I found was from a Hungarian electronics forum and seems to depict a diode and amplifier being used for the temperature sensing which seems like a bad idea to me. The second seems more like what I'm trying to do. The other few things are the negative voltage source, the first schematic shows an inverter being used as does the datasheet, but the second schematic shows an LMC7660 voltage converter which seems like a better option to me. The second one does also show three diodes in series used to drop the voltage for the LED displays which doesn't seem like the best idea, but I can't think of a better way to do it without attaching resistors to each one as the number of lit segments will be variable. The supporting components for the ICL7107 seem pretty consistent between the two and the schematic so I'm confident those are correct, but I'm looking for some advice on how to connect the LM35 in a way that will give me an accurate readout. Thanks!

help creating a biosensor prototype

I will attempt to be as concise as possible. That said, please bare with me if things are explained as well as they need to be, I am very new to this. Determined, but still a novice. I am conducting research as part of an effort to create a wearable prototype. Essentially, I need to combine a ppg heart rate monitor with a infrared thermometer (to measure skin temperature) and to have both devices maintain bluetooth capability. Any input in regards to this would be amazing.  More specifically, I am wondering if there are any DIY ppg heart rate monitor and/or infrared thermometer starter kits? Or resources that will assist with building these elements, aside from tutorials. I ask because it is a challenge to uncover all of the nuance and intricacies with electrical engineering and design without having a sufficient background.  For instance, it is clearly possible to add a bluetooth component to a heart rate monitor, but I am unsure if the two components (ppg hrm and infrared therm) must "talk" to each other while maintaining a bluetooth connection to a website or some other device.  If this is all as "simple" as building these devices separately and adding a bluetooth component to each of them, it would be greatly appreciated if you can provide a specific link to easy sources to obtain the components. I think I can follow along the tutorials, though there are still questions there.  Salud

Need help wiring up this digital thermometer

I bought a thermometer and probe from McMaster-Carr, but didn't expect that it'd come without a power plug nor a clear way to wire it to the probe. Instead, there are a few connections at the back and I need a hand to make sure I don't break anything. Can anyone here help me identify the right way to wire this for 110v wall power? Do I put one end of the power cord into the 0 VAC socket, and the other into the 115 VAC? Also, the probe terminates in eyelets, where this wants a raw wire for the connection. I can snip them--is that right? And why are the probe wires red and yellow (the unit has inputs for TC+ and TC-). I've attached a photo of the rear of the unit. Thanks for your help everyone. EDIT: I did some research and figured out that my hunch was correct. One connection to 0VAC, the other to 115VAC, and the probe leads into the other side. Works great, too.

analogue-digital cmos chips? Answered

Is there a chip like the LM3914 that takes an analogue voltage input and turns it into a digital signal? (preferably BCD, but decimal is fine too), but without the inverting output, so I can use it with other CMOS chips? I basically just want a chip that takes an analogue signal, and based on a threshold, divides it up into a decimal (or binary) signal. Specifically, I want to use it with a thermistor and a 7-segment display to make a digital thermometer.

I have a electric heater that uses a dial, can I link it to a machine to turn it on/off depending on the temperature?

The electric heater is not linked to a thermostat and has a dial (rotates between 120-150 degrees range) on it to control its intensity. I am thinking perhaps to link it to a thermometer to control its intensity when it reaches some temperature thresholds and depending on the time of the day (preferably a schedule).

My question is, is it possible to buy another thermocouple and use it in place of the provided one and still get fairly accurate temperature readings? I was thinking of maybe using a thermocouple normally used in furnaces or hot water heaters.

741 Signal amplifier Answered

How would I go about creating an amplifier using an LM741 to amplify a 0mv-400mv signal to a 0v-4v signal? All the circuits from google or textbooks don't work, or produce strange oscillations. The only way I can get it to work is in inverting mode, where I can get -4v-0v out, which isn't very useful. My specific application for this is for a digital thermometer. I intend to amplify the 0-400mv analogue signal from an LM35 linear temperature sensor, then somehow sample that without using loads of logic or transistors and convert it to decimal or binary, then drive a dual 7-segment display to show the temperature. I have a prototype made using 20 comparators and 10 xor gates, and countless diodes, so if anyone could advise me on an easier way to do that, that would be great. And no PICs/AVRs, I know how to use them and have programmers, but I prefer to do "real" electronics using CMOS chips.

Idea for extended version of "Sun Jar"

After seeing the recent Sun Jar I'ble, I had an idea (not even concrete enought to be a Completable) for an interestingly extended version. There now exist LEDs for infrared, visible red, green, and blue, and near UV.It should be possible, with a mix of small low-voltage constant-current power supplies and pulse modulators, to construct a multiple-LED light source which roughly models what we perceive as the solar "spectrum." I don't mean formally reproducing the raw wavelength distribution, but rather the combination of intensities we see (or measure with a thermometer) in a prism- or grating-spread spectral display.Coupling such a circuit to a solar cell would allow you to build a "Sun Jar" which "collects sunlight" during the day and "releases sunlight" at night. As I said, just an idea...

Also the temperature needs to be very specific (plus or minus 1 degree) is there a thermometer out there that would work well for this?

I put my meat thermometer on the cold side with the fan off - and it gets down to freezing (probably a bit below). On the hot side, with a big sink and fan - it seems to be ~85 at it's warmest point (this sink is about half a square foot and an inch deep). Ideas on where to use? It's 110 service....

ZVS Induction Heater help?

Hi, I tried to build a ZVS induction heater using this circuit http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/5136/inductionm.jpg , but I had no sucess. The work coil is 10+10 turns of 22 AWG wire around an old highlighter casing, and I am powering the circuit from a working 12 volt 7ah battery. The circuit works with my flyback transformer, but does not work on the induction heater. I am using all of the standard components in the flyback circuit, but I replaced the 5+5 turn primary with a 10+10 work coil. As far as I mesured with my thermometer the temperature of the object never increases over 1 degree (I am trying to heat copper wire or a small picture nail). Does anyone have some suggestions? Edit: Sorry about the delay, but I was able to heat a large paper clip using 8+8 turns of 16 AWG wire wrapped around a glass test tube. This time I used a huge 24 volt center tap 18 amp transformer to get 12 volts.
