Receive temperature readings from TSic 206/306/506/716 sensor chips on Raspberry Pi

Project description

python-tsic

Receive temperature readings from TSic sensor chips connected to Raspberry Pi GPIO.

Supported:

  • TSic 206/306
  • TSic 506
  • TSic 706

Don't forget the bypass capacitor as near as possible to the sensor's power supply pins to get stable behavior.

Dependencies

The package tsic requires Python 3 and the great library pigpio for GPIO access with precise timing. Note that Python 2 will not work.

Installation

Install from Python package index PyPI:

pip3 install tsic

Usage

The module tsic provides the following classes:

  • TsicInputChannel receive temperature measurements
  • Measurement a temperature measurement
  • TsicType TSic type definition with instances TSIC206, TSIC306, TSIC506, TSIC716 (206 and 306 are currently equivalent)
  • ZacWireInputChannel receive byte packets over ZACWire protocol (low-level handler for TsicInputChannel)

Command Line Test Tool

Run tsic <gpio-bcm> [--type {206,506,716,306}] [--loop] to read temperatures from a GPIO pin (Broadcom numbering). See tsic --help for command line usage.

pi@raspi3:~ $ sudo tsic 19 --type 306
Receiving data from TSic 206/306...
Measurement 17.90°C at 2018-11-10 16:16:11.419573

Examples

From file example.py:

import time
import pigpio

from tsic import TsicInputChannel, Measurement, TSIC306

# TsicInputChannel and ZacWireInputChannel require pigpio
# for GPIO access with precise timing:
pi = pigpio.pi()

tsic = TsicInputChannel(pigpio_pi=pi, gpio=17, tsic_type=TSIC306)

print('\nA. Single measurement:')
print(tsic.measure_once(timeout=1.0))

print('\nB. All measurements for 1 second:')
tsic.start(lambda measurement: print(measurement))
time.sleep(1)
tsic.stop()

print('\nC. One measurement per second for 3 seconds:')

# start receiving in a context:
with tsic:
    for i in range(3):
        time.sleep(1)
        measurement = tsic.measurement
        if measurement == Measurement.UNDEF:
            print(measurement)
        else:
            print('{:d} {:.1f}°C'.format(i+1, measurement.degree_celsius))

pi.stop()
