 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I'm new to the Arduino and have just being playing around with Thermistors to monitor temperature.

I've been using this great guide by Adafruit:- http://learn.adafruit.com/thermistor/overview

Though was wondering if it is possible to use this sketch for multiple thermistors? e.g A0-A5 being used as inputs

Any help with how to alter the final sketch using the steinhart equation would be greatly appreciated

definitely possible.

You need to write a function that do the conversion from analog value to temperature

Several things, There was a discussion, several of them as a matter of fact about to manage a thermistor you should find all you need here in the forum, Y\ou might search and read them.
There is a guy name of PH Anderson who has a web page here:
http://www.phanderson.com/picaxe/lin_thermistor.html. I think that all your questions are answered there, including a table of  values for calibration.
