Tmp36 & Envirophat


#1

Is there any instructions on how to add the tmp36 to the envirophat ? As in connecting it up.


#2

see the following tutorial:

https://learn.pimoroni.com/tutorial/explorer-hat/making-a-minecraft-thermometer

… obviously the code applies to the Explorer HAT but wiring up should be the same.


#3

Does this look right to get the temp?

import sys
import time
import scrollphat

from envirophat import analog

scrollphat.set_brightness(2)

while True:
try:
print(“updating new temp to diplay”)
scrollphat.clear()
temp = str(analog.read(3))
scrollphat.write_string(temp,0)
length = scrollphat.buffer_len()

            for i in range(length):
                    time.sleep(0.1)
            time.sleep(2)
            scrollphat.clear()
            time.sleep(10)
    except KeyboardInterrupt:
            scrollphat.clear()
            sys.exit(-1)

to read analog input 3, you would use the following:

temp = str(analog.three.read())
