Arduino Based 5 Channel Temperature Sensor with LCD

Arduino Based 5 Channel Temperature Sensor with LCD

The KTA-280 is an interface primarily designed to read Maxim/Dallas DS18S20 and DS18B20 temperature sensors and relay the readings out a USB or RS-485 serial port for PC monitoring with terminal emulation software. Solar Radiation and Wind sensors designed for use with the Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 Weather Station can also be used with the KTA-280 without the need of an entire weather station unit. The use of a Solar Radiation sensor and two temperature sensors can then be used to calculate Solar Collector Efficiency.As well as having this information available to the monitoring PC the optional LCD can be used to display the data locally.

Features:

  • Accepts up to 5 Maxim / Dallas DS18S20 or DS18B20 Digital Temperature Sensors
  • Accepts Davis Instruments 6450 Solar Radiation Sensor
  • Accepts Davis Instruments 7911 Anemometer
  • Readings sent out serial port
  • USB and RS-485 serial ports
  • 8 to 30 VDC Input Power
  • Optional 8x2 LCD
  • Arduino Bootloader for easy firmware modification
  • Enclosure Dimensions: 115 × 90 × 40 mm
