High Temp Waterproof DS18B20 Digital temperature sensor

Includes resistor
Not currently available

This is a pre-wired and waterproofed version of the DS18B20 sensor made with a PTFE wire cable. Handy for when you need to measure something far away, or in wet conditions. The sensor in this housing can be used up to the sensor's 125 °C limit.

Because the sensor signal is digital, you don't get any signal degradation even over long distances! These 1-wire digital temperature sensors are fairly precise (±0.5 °C over much of the range) and can give up to 12 bits of precision from the onboard digital-to-analog converter. They work great with any microcontroller using a single digital pin, and you can even connect multiple ones to the same pin, each one has a unique 64-bit ID burned in at the factory to differentiate them. Usable with 3.0-5.0V systems.

This uses the Dallas 1-Wire protocol, which is somewhat complex, and requires a bunch of code to parse out the communication.

We include a 4.7k resistor, which is required as a pullup from the DATA to VCC line when using the sensor. You can get started by using the Dallas Temperature Control Arduino library which also requires the OneWire Library.
