DS18b20 Temperature Sensor

I have a problem regarding this ds18b20 hardware. It works fine with Arduino IDE but not with XOD.
The problems is that readings (out of Tc pin) keep jumping between 3 different values, for example : 32.16 and 100.0 and 299.55 randomly. The correct one is of course 32.16 degrees Celsius but it doesn’t stay there.

Try slowing down the read time. Use the clock node and set the value to 5 or something else. Sensor’s sometimes are slow on reading stuff.

I did use clock. The result is the same. Slow or fast the same jumping.

can you upload a screenshot of the patch?

Sorry bud, out of ideas :confused:


Thanks for paying attention.

connect “done” of ds18b20 to UPD lcd node

Thanks, it worked. Now the incorrect values show up only when the system boots up.
This is a very simple patch but what if we have a very complex patch that we don’t want the sensor to update the lcd?

you can choose when updating, using a clock, a pulse from another node or several pulses using “ANY”

If you don’t want bogus values from Temp sensor, you can add a buffer node between Temp Sensor node & LCD node. The Temp Sensor Done pin would then connect to the buffer UPD pin. This will keep a fixed value for the LCD to display until buffer is updated later.
