- K type thermocouple with glass over-braiding
- Good up to 500 Degree C (900 Degree F)!
- Color-coded wires
- 1 meter long (a little more than 3 feet)
Thermocouples are best used for measuring temperatures that can go above 100 Degree C. This is a bare wires bead-probe which can measure air or surface temperatures. Most inexpensive thermocouples have a vinyl covering which can melt at around 200 Degree C, this one uses a fiberglass braid so it can be used in high temperature measurements such as heaters and ovens. There’s a small piece of heat shrink on the end to keep the fiberglass from fraying. If you’re using at >250 Degree C temperatures, simply remove it with a small blade.
This breakout board is the simplest way to create a project with a single “momentary” capacitive touch sensor. No microcontroller is required here – just power with 1.8 to 5.5VDC and touch the pad to activate the sensor. When a capacitive load is detected (e.g. a person touches the sensor-pad area) the red LED lights up and the output pin goes high. You can also solder a wire to the middle pad and create your own capacitive pad if the built-in one isn’t suited to your project.
The TMP36G is an analog temperature sensor which has a measurement range of -40 to +125 Degree C.
This semiconductor gas sensor detects the presence of methane (CNG) gas at concentrations from 300 ppm to 10,000 ppm, a range suitable for detecting gas leaks. The sensor s simple analog voltage interface requires only one analog input pin from your microcontroller.
This breakout board is the simplest way to create a project with a single “toggle” capacitive touch sensor. No microcontroller is required here – just power with 1.8 to 5.5VDC and touch the pad to activate the sensor.
