Arduino - Temperature Sensor - LCD
|1||×||Arduino UNO or Genuino UNO|
|1||×||USB 2.0 cable type A/B|
|1||×||Temperature Sensor DS18B20|
|1||×||(Optional) 9V Power Adapter for Arduino|
|1||×||(Recommended) Screw Terminal Block Shield for Arduino Uno|
Or you can buy the following sensor kit:
|1||×||DIYables Sensor Kit 30 types, 69 units|
Buy Note: Many DS18B20 sensors on the market are low-quality. We highly recommend buying the sensor from the DIYables brand using the link above. We tested it, and it worked well.
About Temperature Sensor and LCD
If you do not know about temperature sensor and LCD (pinout, how it works, how to program ...), learn about them in the following tutorials:
- Wiring diagram
- Real wiring
We suggest purchasing a DS18B20 sensor that comes with a wiring adapter for easy connection. The adapter has a built-in resistor, eliminating the need for a separate one in the wiring.
※ NOTE THAT:
The I2C address of LCD can vary according to the manufacturers. In the code, we used 0x27 that is specified by DIYables manufacturer
- Connect Arduino to PC via USB cable
- Open Arduino IDE, select the right board and port
On Arduino IDE, Go to Tools Manage Libraries
- Search “OneWire”, then find the OneWire library by Paul Stoffregen
- Click Install button to install OneWire library.
- Search “Dallas”, then find the DallasTemperature library by Miles Burton.
- Click Install button to install DallasTemperature library.
- Search “LiquidCrystal I2C”, then find the LiquidCrystal_I2C library by Frank de Brabander
- Click Install button to install LiquidCrystal_I2C library.
- Copy the above code and open with Arduino IDE
- Click Upload button on Arduino IDE to upload code to Arduino
- Put the sensor on hot and cold water, or grasp the sensor by your hand
- See the result in LCD
If LCD displays nothing, see Troubleshooting on LCD I2C
