Hello, everyone ! Today I'm going to show you how to make LCD or Serial* thermometer with DS18B20 digitaltemperature sensor using Arduino, breadboard, jumpers. So you can measure temperature of the air, liquids like water and the temperature of the ground.
*prints the temperature data on the serial monitor of the arduino IDE.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Information About the Sensor
DS18B20 is 1-Wire digital temperature sensor from Maxim IC. Reports degrees in Celsius with 9 to 12-bit precision, from -55 to 125 (+/-0.5). Each sensor has a unique 64-Bit Serial number etched into it - allows for a huge number of sensors to be used on one data bus.
- Unique 1-Wire® interface requires only one port pin for communication
- Each device has a unique 64-bit serial code stored in an onboard ROM
- Multidrop capability simplifies distributed temperature sensing applications
- Requires no external components
- Can be powered from data line.
- Power supply range is 3.0V to 5.5V
- Measures temperatures from –55°C to +125°C (–67°F to +257°F)±0.5°C accuracy from –10°C to +85°C
- Thermometer resolution is user-selectable from 9 to 12 bits
- Converts temperature to 12-bit digital word in 750ms (max.)
- User-definable nonvolatile (NV) alarm settings
- Alarm search command identifies and addresses devices whose temperature is outside of programmed limits (temperature alarm condition)
- Applications include thermostatic controls, industrial systems, consumer products, thermometers, or any thermally sensitive system
Step 2: Gathering the Parts
Step 3: Libraries !!!
Before you start to make the thermometer, download and unzip the following libraries for arduino at - /Progam Files(x86)/Arduino/Libraries (default)
Step 4: Serial Thermometer
To print the data on the Serial monitor connect the DS18B20 sensor to the Arduino using the jumpers and the breadboard and don't forget to connect or solder the 4.7k resistor between pin 2 an 3 of the sensor.
Then download, open and upload the .ino file which is named - DS18B20_Serial.
If everything is ok you should see the temperature being measured and showed in the Serial monitor of the arduino IDE like on the screenshot above.
Step 5: LCD Thermometer
If you don't want to measure the temperature through the serial monitor then this step is for you !
Connect the I2C LCD to pins UNO,- A4 (SDA) , A5 (SCL) andthe sensor to digital pin 2. Then download and upload the .ino file which is named - DS18B20_I2C_LCD . If everything is OK you will see the temperature readings on the display.
