Raspberry pi i2c interface for Maxim-Dallas DS1621 DS1631 DS1631A DS1721 DS1731 digital thermometer and thermostat.

Project description

DS1631 module

This pure python module provides a raspberry pi i2c interface for Maxim-Dallas DS1621 DS1631 DS1631A DS1721 DS1731 high-precision digital thermometer and thermostat.


2-wire serial data bus

DS1631s are connected to Raspberry pi i2c GPIO (8 devices max) with 4 wires :

  • SDA i2c bus (GPIO2)
  • SCL i2c bus (GPIO3)
  • Power (3.3 V or 5 V)
  • Ground

Basic usage

Raspberry pi : OS Raspbian

First, you need python 3 smbus module :

sudo apt install python3-smbus

DS1631 device simple example

import DS1631
import time

i2c_address = 0x48
ic1 = DS1631.DS1631(1, i2c_address)
# thermostat config
# thermometer config
# read temperature
while True:
    temperature = ic1.get_temperature()
    print("Temperature  : {} °C".format(temperature))

Virtual device simple example

DS1631 module provides a DS1631virtualdevice class for development without raspberry pi or DS1631s devices.

On–Off controller (hysteresis controller) simulation is performed :

  • if temperature > thigh then electric radiator OFF
  • if temperature < tlow then electric radiator ON

Of course, you don't need python 3 smbus module, so you can work with a Windows OS computer or Android OS device (pydroid3).

import DS1631
import time

# virtual device
room = DS1631.DS1631virtualdevice(initial_temperature=18,
                                  thigh=20, tlow=19,
                                  P=1000, R=0.02,
while True:
    temperature = room.get_temperature()
    print("Temperature  : {} °C".format(temperature))
