Steinhart -- Hart and Beta thermistor temperature model in Python and C. Implementation and utilities

Thermistor utilities

A python based library implementing models to convert thermistor values from temperature to resistance and vice versa.

Steinhart--Hart model

How to use

# import the Steinhart--Hart and or the Beta converter
from thermistor_utils import SH_converter


Create a converter from A, B, and C coefficients:

A, B, C = (0.0008402250578523375, 0.00025963477647737156, 1.5674403473853433e-07, )
conv = SH_converter(A, B, C)


If they're not available the converter could compute the values from three evenly spaced readings of temperature and resistance.

Create the converter from temp/res readings:

readings = (
(0, 27445),
(25, 10000),
(50, 4160),
)


Printing the coefficients in a form suitable for subsequent use in python and C:

print(repr(conv))

# SH_converter(0.0008402250578523375, 0.00025963477647737156, 1.5674403473853433e-07, 0, 50)

print(conv.to_cstr())

# {0.0008402250578523375, 0.00025963477647737156, 1.5674403473853433e-07, 0, 50}

# compact but less precise representation
# (inverse of coefficients and no temperature range)
print(conv.to_cstr(compact=True, with_temps=False))

# {1./1190, 1./3852, 1./6379828}


Use the reference implementation in C (example-1.c):

#include <stdio.h>
#include <thermistor_utils.h>

int main(void)
{
struct sh_s coefficients = {
0.0008402250578523375,
0.00025963477647737156,
1.5674403473853433e-07
};

// 25C to Ohm and 10k Ohm to Celsius
double  R_at_25   = sh_resistance(coefficients, 25),
T_at_10000 = sh_temperature(coefficients, 10000);

printf("25 Celsius -> %.0f Ohms\n", R_at_25);
printf("10k Ohms   -> %.0f Celsius\n", T_at_10000);
}
