High Temp Waterproof DS18B20 Digital
temperature sensor + extras
This is a pre-wired and waterproofed version of the DS18B20 sensor made with a PTFE wire cable. Handy
for when you need to measure something far away, or in wet conditions. This sensor is a little more
expensive than the other waterproof version we have with a PVC cable because this one can be used up to
125°C - the limit of the sensor itself.
Because the sensor signal is digital, you don't get any signal degradation even over long distances! These 1-
wire digital temperature sensors are fairly precise (±0.5°C over much of the range) and can give up to 12
bits of precision from the onboard digital-to-analog converter. They work great with any microcontroller
using a single digital pin, and you can even connect multiple ones to the same pin, each one has a unique
64-bit ID burned in at the factory to differentiate them. Usable with 3.0-5.0V systems.
The only downside is they use the Dallas 1-Wire protocol, which is somewhat complex, and requires a
bunch of code to parse out the communication. If you want something really simple, and you have an
analog input pin, the TMP36 is trivial to get going.
We toss in a 4.7k resistor, which is required as a pullup from the DATA to VCC line when using the
sensor. We don't have a detailed tutorial up yet but you can get started by using the Dallas Temperature
Control Arduino library which requires also the OneWire Library.
