Thermistor output to LCD
Arduino project using a 10K thermistor and an LCD screen to output basic temperature in celsius
- Arduino Duemilanove with ATmega328P
- LCD unit LCD HD44780 (ebay)
- 10K Thermistor
- 10K resistor
- 10K Potentiometer
- Assorted hookup wire
Assemble as shown in the Diagram.
Code was based on LCD tutorials
from arduino tutorials and the "simple code" version of reading a thermistor from the arduino playground
I was pleasantly surprised how things went together and how easy it was to get working, especially after I was unable to get any reasonable data from an LM335z temp sensor.
To make my LCD unit more breadboard friendly, I soldered some header pins onto the the LCD unit so now it just plugs into my breadboard.
