The code is shown below. Before we can get a Kevlin reading of the temperature, the analog output voltage must first be read. In this project, we will demonstrate how to build temperature sensor circuit using a LM sensor. This allows us to calibrate the temperature sensor if we want a more precise temperature readout.

The IC has just 3 pins, 2 for the power supply and one for the analog output. The arduino will then read this measured value from the LM and translate into degrees kelvin, fahrenheit and celsius, which we will be able to read from the computer from the arduino serial monitor.

As a temperature sensor, the circuit will read the temperature of the surrounding environment and relay this temperature to us back in degrees Kelvin.

View lm355 datasheet:

The difference between an LM and LM34 and LM35 temperature sensors is the LM sensor gives out the temperature in degrees Kelvin, while the LM35 sensor gives out the temperature in degrees Celsius and the LM34 sensor gives out the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. This will be the raw value divided by times Now the computer is connected to the arduino. The arduino, with suitable code, can then interpret this measured analog voltage and output to us the temperature in degrees Kelvin, Celsius, and Fahrenheit.


Since the output pin can give out a maximum of 5 voltsrepresents the full possible range it can give out. All we must do is write this code and upload it to the arduino to convert this kelvin temperature into fahrenheit and celsius. All 3 are calibrated different to output the millivolt voltage reading in proportional to these different units of measurement.

We will integrate this with the arduino to measure the temperature. We get the ratio of the raw value to the full span of and then multiply it by to get the millivolt value.

So if the LM is giving an output reading of 2. This is because there is millvolts in 5 volts. This om355 into the circuit schematic: The type B side of the connector goes into the arduino and the type A side into the USB port of the computer.

Pin 2 is the output pin. You can adjust this value to meet your personal preference or program needs. This is so that we can hook our arduino to a computer and send it code that it can run to display to us the temperature.

How to Build a LM Temperature Sensor Circuit

We can now write code in the processing software to give instructions to the arduino. This is ideal because the arduino’s power pin gives out 5V of power. We attach this pin to analog pin A0 of the arduino board.


It is divided by because a span of occupies 5V. We can then easily convert this value into dqtasheet and celsius by plugging in the appropriate conversion equations. Pin 1 is the Adjustable Pin Adj. This output reading of So to get the degree datawheet in fahrenheit, all that must be done is to take the voltage output and divide it by this give out the value degrees in fahrenheit.

The output pin provides an analog voltage output that is linearly proportional to the fahrenheit temperature. So, for example, if the output pin, pin 2, gives out a value l,355 mV 0.

So you circuit connections are: Pin 2 gives an output of 1 millivolt per 0. Once we have this ratio, we then multiply it by to give the millivolt value. We can use any type of arduino board.

This is the datasheet of the LM IC: Once this analog voltage in millivolts is calculated, we then can find the temperature in kelvin by the equation: Temperature Sensor Circuit The temperature sensor circuit we will build is shown below: Below is the pinout of the LM IC: The raw voltage over this value therefore represents the ratio of how much power the output pin is outputting against this full range.

Once we obtain this Celsius value, we can convert into Fahrenheit with the following equation:
