Electronic thermometer

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This very simple circuit is an electronic thermometer using an inexpensive silicon transistor (2N2222) as the temperature sensor or probe. The circuit provides better than 1ƒ accuracy over a 100ƒ range. An LM113 diode regulates the input voltage to 1. 2 V. The 1. 2 / is applied through R2 to set the operating current of the temperatu
