Here's an immediate comment for the stray surfer: Don't let these
pages put you off installing Solar Panels!
I'm an engineer, so I want to know what's going on. A "touch of a pipe" is not really good enough for me, so I've designed a logger that lets me monitor temperature at key points in the system.
These pages describe the complete design of a temperature logger.
Several 100 of these loggers have been built. 3 by the author, the rest
by people that have stumbled across this site. (There may well be more: the zip
download averages three a day; these pages were first posted in July 1999.)
On these pages you will find the complete design: PIC controller (16C84, DS1820) firmware source, hardware schematic, and logging / monitoring applications.
