DIY Arduino 6-channel temperature monitor
Johnathan Hottell wanted a way to monitor and display the temperature readings at various points around the engine on his LB7 Duramax diesel truck. He developed this project for a six channel temperature monitor employing a bank of thermistors to monitor various engine locations. They are read each second by the Arduino’s analog pins, with the values interpreted and temperatures displayed on a Nokia 3310 LCD screen.
He notes: “A commercial style temperature scanner can cost hundreds of dollars, this project minimizes that cost.” This is a good example of the cost savings that can be realized using a DIY open source solution.
