Arduino and DS1624 temperature sensor

The DS1624 consists of two separate functional units: a 256-byte nonvolatile E2 memory and a direct-to-digital temperature sensor.

The nonvolatile memory is made up of 256 bytes of E2 memory. This memory can be used to store any type of information the user wishes. These memory locations are accessed through the 2-wire serial bus.

The direct-to-digital temperature sensor allows the DS1624 to measure the ambient temperature and report the temperature in a 12-bit word with 0.0625°C resolution. The temperature sensor and its related registers are accessed through the 2-wire serial interface. Figure 1 in the full data sheet shows a block diagram of the DS1624.

Code

I downloaded and imported the following library – https://github.com/bluemurder/DS1624

This is the example so some of the hard graft has already been done for you

#include <DS1624.h>
 
// Sensor presents all address pins connected to ground
DS1624 ds1624(0x00);
 
void setup()
{ 
// Begin serial connection at 9600 baud
Serial.begin(9600);
}
 
void loop()
{
float temperature;
bool valid;
 
// Get current temperature
ds1624.GetTemperature(temperature, valid);
 
// Print it
Serial.println(temperature);
 
// Wait a while
delay(1000);
}

Testing

Open the serial monitor and you should see the following

24.31
24.31
24.87
25.94
26.44
27.06
27.37
27.81
27.81
27.69
