A python module for the TSYS01 digital temperature sensor

Project description


A python module to interface with the TSYS01 temperature sensor. Tested on Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian.

The python SMBus library must be installed.

sudo apt-get install python-smbus


import tsys01


sensor = tsys01.TSYS01() # Use default I2C bus 1 sensor = tsys01.TSYS01(0) # Specify I2C bus 0


Initialize the sensor. This needs to be called before using any other methods.


Returns true if the sensor was successfully initialized, false otherwise.


Read the sensor and update the temperature.

Returns True if read was successful, False otherwise.


Get the most recent temperature measurement.

sensor.temperature() # Get temperature in default units (Centigrade) sensor.temperature(ms5837.UNITS_Farenheit) # Get temperature in Farenheit

Valid arguments are:

tsys01.UNITS_Centigrade tsys01.UNITS_Farenheit tsys01.UNITS_Kelvin

Returns the most recent temperature in the requested units, or temperature in degrees Centigrade if invalid units specified. Call read() to update.
