PT100 measurements: MAX31865 vs 4-20 mA

Since very recently I have two identical PT100 sensors set up inside the same fan-aspirated shield. The first sensor is read using the Adafruit MAX31865 breakout board, while the second is linked to a 4-20 mA current loop transmitter. In both cases, a Wemos D1 Mini microcontroller is used to process the signal. For the […]

Using a 4-20 mA PT100 transmitter

In this post, I explained how I used an Adafruit MAX31865 clone in order to read a PT100 temperature sensor. Since then, I’ve tested an original Adafruit version as well. Accuracy from this board is a lot better. While I had to add a calibration offset of somewhere between 0.8 and 1.5 degrees to configurations using the […]
