The RPI_T8 has 8 ports readily available for connection with a DS18B20. Note that more than 8 probes can be used by connecting several probe to a single port.
The RPI_T8 can be used on its own or stacked on top of RPICT7V1 RPICT4V3 or RPICT8.
The RPI_T8 must be slave 1. i.e. First jumper set as slave. Microcontroller must be removed from the board to operate as slave.
RPI_T8 must be the top unit in any stack. This is due to the screw terminal which won't be accessible if not at the top.
General stacking information is described in the RPICT stacking page.
The documentation for serial configuration can be found on this page.
To enable temperature just add a single channel as temperature. All detected probe will be output.
The board can be configured with the online configurator.
In order to use the RPI_T8 as slave the master board must be flashed with the sketch below with temperature support enabled. To enable Temperature support uncomment line 10 in the sketch. Remove the two slashes in the following line.
