Temperature Sensor Board

with RS-485 interface

Temperature Sensor Board
Temperature sensors are needed in many automation applications, and the RS-485 interface allows reliable communication of data even over long distances. Our compact temperature sensor board is equipped with an ATtiny microcontroller and an RS-485 driver, and it is possible to connect several sensors in parallel to one board. In addition we present some example firmware which communicates temperature readings using the ElektorBus protocol, and software to display the results on a PC provides the finishing touch.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
