For when you need a temperature sensor, pure and simple: This Temperature Phidget can measure the ambient temperature of the surrounding air from -40°C to 85°C, perfect for home or outdoor use. Simply plug it into a port on your VINT Hub and with a single command you can read the current temperature in degrees Celsius (See the Comaptible Products tab for a list of VINT Hubs). If the temperature rises above 85°C or falls below -40°C, the API will fire a saturation error to notify that the measured temperature is out of range.
This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. For more information about VINT, have a look at the VINT Primer. You can use a Phidget Cable to simply and easily connect the two devices. Here's a list of all of the different VINT Hubs currently available:
Use a Phidget cable to connect this device to the hub. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.
Welcome to the TMP1000 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:
Next, you will need to connect the pieces:
Now that you have everything together, let's start using the TMP1000!
In order to demonstrate the functionality of the TMP1000, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.
The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines.
To open the Phidget Control Panel on Windows, find the icon in the taskbar. If it is not there, open up the start menu and search for Phidget Control Panel
To open the Phidget Control Panel on macOS, open Finder and navigate to the Phidget Control Panel in the Applications list. Double click on the icon to bring up the Phidget Control Panel.
For more information, take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:
Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the TMP1000.
After plugging the TMP1000 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:
The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:
The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.
Double-click on the Temperature Sensor object , labelled Temperature Phidget, in order to run the example:
General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:
