Hello everyone, I recently purchased my first arduino board in the hopes of making a special thermostat to control a zone valve at temperatures of 212 to 214 Fahrenheit . However being a noob, i believe i may have gone in the deep end.
My probelem - I purchased a temperature probe from atlas Scientific (ENV-TMP-D: Digital Field Ready Temperature Probe with Data Logger) thinking that it would be “cool” or somehow better if i got the digital variety of the probe over the analog.
Now that the probe has arrived im not sure how to hook it up to the arduino. It has 4 wires ,red-vcc,white-RX, Green-TX, and black-gnd.
THE MAIN FEAR IS THAT I WILL LET THE MAGIC SMOKE OUT OF THE ARDUINO OR THE PROBE. :o
What im thinking: (PROBE PERSPECTIVE)
Black will go to GND pin,
Red-will go to 5v pin,
White-will go to digital 0pin,
Green-will go to Digital 1pin
Do any of these wires require a resistor between them or in line to the arduino?
Then comes how to i get the arduino to talk to the probe, im sure it takes some library but also not sure.
Thanks in advance, any help will be very much appreciated
