Digital Temperature Sensor DS18B20 –55°C to +125°C

DS18B20 1-Wire digital temperature sensor from Maxim IC has a range of –55°C to +125°C. Each sensor is uniquely addressable via a 64bit serial number so lots of sensors can be used on the same bus. Powered from 3v to 5.5V the sensor has up to 12bit resolution at ±0.5°C accuracy.

The tiny sensor has only 3 wires and uses only one wire for its "1-Wire® interface " and each sensor has a unique 64bit serial number. This means you can put a whole bunch of these little sensors on the same communications bus and read there values. See the documents section below for hookup guides and data sheets.


  • Unique 1-Wire® interface requires only one port pin for communication
  • Each device has a unique 64-bit serial code stored in an onboard ROM
  • Multidrop capability simplifies distributed temperature sensing applications
  • Requires no external components
  • Can be powered from data line. Power supply range is 3.0V to 5.5V
  • Measures temperatures from –55°C to +125°C (–67°F to +257°F)
  • ±0.5°C accuracy from –10°C to +85°C
  • Thermometer resolution is user-selectable from 9 to 12 bits
  • Converts temperature to 12-bit digital word in 750ms (max.)
  • User-definable nonvolatile (NV) alarm settings
  • Alarm search command identifies and addresses devices whose temperature is outside of programmed limits (temperature alarm condition)
  • Applications include thermostatic controls, industrial systems, consumer products, thermometers, or any thermally sensitive system
