On Amazon they cost about 13€ 🛒 Quality At constant temperatures, these sensors work okay, but these cheap sensors show a so-called temperature drift. This means that the… Read More »

Since version v1.0 a guided calibration mode has been introduced. This simplifies calibration so that the text below is no longer necessary. The calibration consists of two values.… Read More »
