Arduino component 14: DS18B20 Digital Temperature Sensor

Arduino component 14: DS18B20 Digital Temperature Sensor

Component 14:

Component description
What? DS18B20 3V~5.5V 3-Pin Digital Output Temperature Sensor
Why? This is a digital temperature sensor which measures between -55 to +125 degrees Celsius, up to 0.0625 degree temperature measurement resolution. This is a nice sensor to experiment with digital sensors and such a high resolution is interesting in combination with the Ethernet shield
Price EUR 2,82 per piece
