Thermometer Project Kit

Exclusive to Kitronik
Teaching Notes
Key Stage 3/4
The Thermometer Kit uses a thermistor to measure indoor and outdoor temperatures. The temperature is shown on an LED scale, controlled by a PIC microcontroller.

Availability: In Stock.

This kit uses a thermistor to measure the temperature which is then displayed on an LED scale. A PIC micro-controller, pre-programmed with special software, is used to process the output of the thermistor and light the relevant LEDs.

The thermometer has two temperature ranges. One designed for indoor use and the other for outdoor use (selected by a wire link). The temperature is displayed every 10 seconds or can be displayed on demand by adding either a normally open / normally closed push button switch.

How A Potential Divider / Voltage Divider Works
A guide to understanding how a Potential Divider / Voltage Divider works. What is a Potential Divider / Voltage Divider? This is a simple circuit which takes advantage of the way voltages drop across resistors in series.

Can it be modified so the LEDs are always on (as opposed to 10 secs) with on-off switch? What is the temperature range for each of 8 LEDs for indoor use?


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Tuesday, 27 October 2015

    The chip supplied with the kit is pre-programmed and can’t be altered, as such you wouldn’t be able to keep the LED’s on constantly. The temperature range for indoor use is between 14C to 30C which is shown in 2 degree increments.
