About the Temperature Sensor Kit

This page will provide details about the temperature sensors provided in the Phidgets Temperature Sensor Kit.

Once you finish this tutorial page, you will know enough about these sensors that you can incorporate them in your own projects. Good luck!

Temperature Sensor Comparisons

For comparisons of the temperature sensors provided in this kit, take a look at the Temperature Sensors Primer. The Temperature Sensors Primer will also provide information on other common types of temperature sensors not included in this kit.

TMP1000

The TMP1000 is an integrated temperature sensor. This Phidget is typically used to measure the air temperature of the environment around it.

Try It Out

Navigate to the TMP1000 Product Page and select the User Guide tab.

Follow the instructions on the User Guide up to the Using Your Own Program section to get your Phidget running, then return to this guide.

Circle with X.png DO NOT continue into Using Your Own Program. This tutorial page will cover the custom application you are to write instead.

Programming Tasks

To demonstrate your understanding of the TMP1000, write a program that writes the temperature to the screen every 500ms.

Refer to the API tab on the TMP1000 Product Page, and select your programming language for more information on how to use the TMP1000 in a program.

TMP1100

This is a thermocouple Phidget. This Phidget is intended for use with the thermocouple probe included with this kit. You can use the probe to measure the temperature of anything the probe can be attached to (or immersed in?).

This Phidget also has an Integrated Temperature Sensor on channel 1.

Try It Out

Navigate to the TMP1100 Product Page and select the User Guide tab.

Programming Tasks

To demonstrate your understanding of the TMP1100, write a program that writes the temperature of the thermocouple probe to the screen every 100ms. Print the temperature from the ambient temperature sensor channel every 1000ms.

Refer to the API tab on the TMP1100 Product Page, and select your programming language for more information on how to use the TMP1100 in a program.
