I'm new to Arduino and physical computing. I'm trying to read a temperature using the Dallas 18B20 sensor.  I'm using the following code that I found on this forum:

Code: [Select]

#include <OneWire.h>

/* DS18S20 Temperature chip i/o

*/

OneWire  ds(10);  // on pin 10

void setup(void) {
 // initialize inputs/outputs
 // start serial port
 Serial.begin(9600);
}



void loop(void) {
 byte i;
 byte present = 0;
 byte data[12];
 byte addr[8];
 
 if ( !ds.search(addr)) {
     //Serial.print("No more addresses.\n");
     ds.reset_search();
     return;
 }
 
 Serial.print("R=");  //R=28 Not sure what this is
 for( i = 0; i < 8; i++) {
   Serial.print(addr[i], HEX);
   Serial.print(" ");
 }

 if ( OneWire::crc8( addr, 7) != addr[7]) {
     Serial.print("CRC is not valid!\n");
     return;
 }
 
 if ( addr[0] != 0x28) {
     Serial.print("Device is not a DS18S20 family device.\n");
     return;
 }

 ds.reset();
 ds.select(addr);
 ds.write(0x44,1);         // start conversion, with parasite power on at the end
 
 delay(1000);     // maybe 750ms is enough, maybe not
 // we might do a ds.depower() here, but the reset will take care of it.
 
 present = ds.reset();
 ds.select(addr);    
 ds.write(0xBE);         // Read Scratchpad

 Serial.print("P=");  
 Serial.print(present,HEX);
 Serial.print(" ");
 for ( i = 0; i < 9; i++) {           // we need 9 bytes
   data[i] = ds.read();
   Serial.print(data[i], HEX);
   Serial.print(" ");
 }

 Serial.print(" CRC=");
 Serial.print( OneWire::crc8( data, 8), HEX);
 Serial.println();
}

This is the output:

R=28 16 F7 7D 1 0 0 9E P=1 8F 1 4B 46 7F FF 1 10 14  CRC=14
R=28 16 F7 7D 1 0 0 9E P=1 90 1 4B 46 7F FF 10 10 92  CRC=92
R=28 16 F7 7D 1 0 0 9E P=1 90 1 4B 46 7F FF 10 10 92  CRC=92

...

I'm sure this is exactly what it's supposed to output but how in the heck do I convert this output to a real temperature in either celsius or fahrenheit? Thanks.

There's a datasheet here: http://pdfserv.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/DS18B20.pdf which tells you how to decode the 9 bytes (8F 1 4B etc.) coming back from the device. At a quick glance the first two bytes encode the temperature. Page 4 in the PDF gives you the gory details:

Quote

The DS18B20 output temperature data is calibrated in degrees centigrade; for Fahrenheit applications, a
lookup table or conversion routine must be used. The temperature data is stored as a 16-bit sign-extended
two's complement number in the temperature register (see Figure 2). The sign bits (S) indicate if the
temperature is positive or negative: for positive numbers S = 0 and for negative numbers S = 1. If the
DS18B20 is configured for 12-bit resolution, all bits in the temperature register will contain valid data.
For 11-bit resolution, bit 0 is undefined. For 10-bit resolution, bits 1 and 0 are undefined, and for 9-bit
resolution bits 2, 1 and 0 are undefined. Table 2 gives examples of digital output data and the
corresponding temperature reading for 12-bit resolution conversions.

I modified the above code to provide Fahrenheit output.  it is easy to switch to celcius just comment out the appropriate line of code
Code: [Select]
#include <OneWire.h>

/* DS18S20 Temperature chip i/o

*/

OneWire  ds(10);  // on pin 10

void setup(void) {
 // initialize inputs/outputs
 // start serial port
 Serial.begin(9600);
}



void loop(void) {
 byte i;
 byte present = 0;
 byte data[12];
 byte addr[8];
 int Temp;
 if ( !ds.search(addr)) {
     //Serial.print("No more addresses.\n");
     ds.reset_search();
     return;
 }
 
 Serial.print("R=");  //R=28 Not sure what this is
 for( i = 0; i < 8; i++) {
   Serial.print(addr[i], HEX);
   Serial.print(" ");
 }

 if ( OneWire::crc8( addr, 7) != addr[7]) {
     Serial.print("CRC is not valid!\n");
     return;
 }
 
 if ( addr[0] != 0x28) {
     Serial.print("Device is not a DS18S20 family device.\n");
     return;
 }

 ds.reset();
 ds.select(addr);
 ds.write(0x44,1);         // start conversion, with parasite power on at the end
 
 delay(1000);     // maybe 750ms is enough, maybe not
 // we might do a ds.depower() here, but the reset will take care of it.
 
 present = ds.reset();
 ds.select(addr);    
 ds.write(0xBE);         // Read Scratchpad

 Serial.print("P=");  
 Serial.print(present,HEX);
 Serial.print(" ");
 for ( i = 0; i < 9; i++) {           // we need 9 bytes
   data[i] = ds.read();
   Serial.print(data[i], HEX);
   Serial.print("  ");
 }
 Temp=(data[1]<<8)+data[0];//take the two bytes from the response relating to temperature

 Temp=Temp>>4;//divide by 16 to get pure celcius readout

 //next line is Fahrenheit conversion
 Temp=Temp*1.8+32; // comment this line out to get celcius
 
 Serial.print("T=");//output the temperature to serial port
 Serial.print(Temp);
   Serial.print("  ");


 Serial.print(" CRC=");
 Serial.print( OneWire::crc8( data, 8), HEX);
 Serial.println();
}

I'm trying to use the above code with a DS18B20 tempature sensor in Arduino 18 environment, but I can't get it to work.  It gets stuck in this loop:

 if ( !ds.search(addr)) {
     Serial.print("No more addresses.\n");
     ds.reset_search();
     return;

And just constantly prints out "No more addresses".  I'm not sure where I downloaded the 1-wire library from.  I think I may have an error in it - either that or it is not compatible with the latest Arduino environment.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you

UPDATE:  I discovered this morning I was using the wrong resistor, so no need to reply to this post.  It's working.  That's what I get for trying to choose a part in dim light - duh!
