Mini Temp Logger

A small temperature logger with a real time clock for sensing -55C to 128C with up to 65,536 logging data points, customisable logging time and powered by a coin cell. Can log voltage as well.


(v1.0 pictured)

Features
• Measure temperature using the TMP102 sensor from -55C to 128C
• Measure voltage from 0V to 22V
• Uses an I2C EEPROM to support up to 65,536 logging data recordings
• High time accuracy using the MCP7940M real time clock. Set the time via the PC application so it records the start time when logging. Features trim and auto trim from temperature settings.
• Configurable logging delay available between 1 second to 255 days via PC application
• Easily transfer the logged data to your PC via USB by running an PC application
• Operates from a 3V CR1220 coin cell
Note: You can only log temperature or voltage, not both at the same time.

Software Revision History
v1.1 – 4 April 2017
– Bug fix when reading voltage while plugging into PC, it seemed to work until I tried another
PC. Was using ADC sleep when it should have used delay_ms instead (Firmware update
required).
– Added updated settings text to show when updating settings is in progress
– Changes to GUI so it’s not as laggy when moving it around the screen
– Added config.ini to support changing voltage divider / calibration numbers easily through
GUI/Console
