Temperature sensor.jpg

Electronic brick of temperature sensor is mainly used to detect the temperature changes in the environment. The control board can get the current temperature information via analog pins. Generally speaking, the resistance of temperature sensitive resistor decreases with the increase of temperature.


1. Plug and play, easy to use. Compatible with the mainstream 2.54 interfaces and 4-Pin Grove interfaces in the market. IM120710010_2.jpg

2. With use of M4 standard fixed holes, compatible with M4-standard kits such as Lego and Makeblock. IM120710010_3.jpg

3. With switch to shift between analog and digital output. Able to read the specific temperature information (analog) or the over-high or over-low temperature information according to the threshold (digital). The adjustable potentiometer is used to set the temperature threshold. With hysteresis comparator circuit for more stable digital output voltage. IM120710010_4.jpg

4. Detecting direction can be rotated for better adaption. IM120710010_5.jpg
