Temperature Sensor – TMP36, PTH, TO-92
This easy to use TMP36 is a low voltage, precision centigrade temperature sensor.
It provides a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the Celsius temperature. It also doesn’t require any external calibration to provide typical accuracies of ±1°C at +25°C and ±2°C over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range.
Simply give the device a ground, a 2.7 to 5.5 VDC, and then read the voltage on the Vout pin. The output voltage can be converted to temperature easily using the scale factor of 10 mV/°C.
This device is perfect for use in Environmental control systems, Thermal protection, Industrial process control, Fire alarms, Power system monitors and CPU thermal management etc…
