Thermocouple Support


#1

Hi guys,

I would like to know what is the best supported thermocouple that I can use with Cayenne. I need to measure temperatures from 100F-900F.

Adafruit sell these https://www.adafruit.com/product/270 but I didn’t see them supported in the sensor list. How complicated would it be to add an unlisted sensor like this?

Thanks!

its possible with cayenne. have a look at this https://learn.adafruit.com/thermocouple/overview
once connected to arduino you can send the value to cayenne.

Thermocouple works fine with Cayenne, pay attention that beside K probe you need also SPI module to be able to connect the probe to ESP device.
