Controls for Thorlabs TSP01 temperature and humidity sensor

Project description


Low and high level python wrappers for Thorlabs TSP01B temperature and humidity sensor.

This is an unofficial package and is not supported by the vendor of equipment.

This package provides:

  1. low-level functions, which are thin wrappers around the C-functions from the DLL distributed by Thorlabs;
  2. high-level class for connecting to the sensor and getting temperature and humidity readout.

This package was tested on Windows only. Only TSP01 Rev.B sensor was tested.



Download and install the software from, choose Software tab. This program provides the drivers (DLLs discoverable by the py_thorlabs_tsp), and also the TSP01 Application, which has a GUI and allows connecting and reading out the sensor.
