  • Alright, having some issues here. Bought three of these hoping they would provide the temp data i’ll need to control temp sensitive heaters. I’m a newbie, and could use as much help as possible. I’ve visited these sites:<br />
    <br />
    After browsing the web, ive seen: http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorial/AIK/CIRC10-A-sheet-SPAR.pdf. and http://www.ladyada.net/learn/sensors/tmp36.html. <br />
    <br />
    With no luck using either diagram.<br />
    <br />
    I’ve moved onto using a trim pot in place of a resistor to help calibrate, but is this the right idea?<br />
    Most helpful advice would be a visual example of how to simply use this sensor for an application on an arduino.
