This is a thermometer with 3 1/2 digit LCD display for measuring the ambient temperature.
The sensor is an integrated circuit S-8100BF, which is usually used
for temperature compensation. This device includes also a 3 1/2 digit convertor ICL7106.
The unit was ready for the first use in 1996. Later in 1999, I made some
modifications to allow a better temperature calibration.
In 2012 I have dismantle this thermometer to use the same components and
printed circuit board for a voltmeter.
Main sensor features are:
-linear output voltage: -8.1 mV / °C
-temperature range: from -40°C to 100 °C
-linearity: ±1% (-20°C to 80 °C)
-repeatability: ±0.3 °C
(for complete list of specifications, see )
- measuring domain: from 0°C to 50°C (estimated)
- resolution: 0.1°C
- accuracy (estimated): ± 1°C
- powered from mains socket: 230 VAC
