Need an easy way to measure the temperature wherever you are? How about trying this thermometer from the Troyka Module series? It’s easy to work with and extremely easy to use - no soldering, no small components, no confusion. Nothing needs to be set up - everything is ready for you!
This sensor can be used to measure the temperature of air, water, or even oil. In order to measure the temperature of water or oil you must first add insulation to the thermometer, otherwise your readings will not be accurate and you may damage the sensor.
This module is based around the TMP36 sensor. Its operating range is from -40 °C to +125 °C.
Moreover, the module, as well as many others from the Troyka Module series, can be neatly placed on the front panel of your device, fastened with М3 screws.
The output of the sensor is an analog signal, with a voltage level directly proportional to the temperature in steps of 10 mV / °C. Due to this, it is very easy to convert the read signal into degrees on a microcontroller.
Connect via the 3-pin jumper cable to receive a signal from the module. The 3-pin jumper cable needed for the connection is included in the kit.
There are several different ways to wire this module:
Troyka Shield. The most straightforward method. Connect the module to a pin group on Troyka Shield with the 3-pin jumper cable and you’re ready to interface with it from your Arduino.
Troyka Slot Shield. The best choice for quick prototyping. Using slots on the shield, you can get rid of cables. The module will be held securely in place using both pin headers.
Breadboard. For advanced use. Troyka pin headers have 0.1” spacing which is compatible with any breadboard. Simply wire the module like you would do with any IC.
