I'm struggling to understand how I should best go about connecting my arduino to multiple RTD temperatures, and then have this data recorded and saved for my records (preferably in excel or some easy to transfer document)
What I have are:
-9 100 ohm RTD temperature probes -a large panel in which the probes connect -on the outside of the panel, a screen that displays the temperature in the 9 probes -a flash drive that plugs into the panel and collects data automatically -arduino uno -computer with Ubunto (no internet)
I have seen multiple RTD tutorials in which temperature is monitored under very specific set up instructions, which of course makes the procedure very easy if you have all the parts. but my set up is so unique, I fail to understand how to make these connections.
If possible, I'd like to connect the probes input to my computer and be able to record data automatically. It doesn't have to be pretty or fancy, it doesn't need internet. It just needs to take input from these 9 probes, and record them in a file on my computer .
My arduino knowledge is poor in that, of course I can construct something with every single part available to me with detailed instructions, but without that I tend to make useless jumbles of wire and parts.
If someone could please advise to me a method on which I can set this up, with pictures, part numbers/descriptions and reasons I'd greatly appreciate the help. I have provided images that may help visualize what I have at hand. I am able to order some parts as needed, but I want to keep this simple and cheap.
Please let me know what other information I could provide, and thank you for your help.
