CircuitPython library for Thermistor thermal resistor temperature sensor.

Project description

Introduction

Documentation Status Discord Build Status

Thermistors are resistors that predictably change resistance with temperature. This driver uses an analog reading and math to determine the temperature. They are commonly used as a low cost way to measure temperature.

Dependencies

This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-thermistor

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-thermistor

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-thermistor

Usage Example

The hardest part of using the driver is its initialization. Here is an example for the thermistor on the Circuit Playground and Circuit Playground Express. Its a 10k series resistor, 10k nominal resistance, 25 celsius nominal temperature and 3950 B coefficient.
