Product Description:


The ARDUINO MKR THERM Shield is an advanced accessory designed for the MKR family of boards, enabling the acquisition of temperature data from high-quality thermocouples and digital one-wire sensors.

  • Connectors : K TYPE,DALLAS DS18S20 (to solder),Screw terminal block
  • Input Voltage : 3.3V
  • Operating Voltage : 3.3V
  • Communication : SPI/1Wire
  • IC : MAX31855
  • Length : 61mm
  • Width : 25mm
  • Weight : 32 gr.
  • Temperature Range: It can measure extreme temperatures ranging from -200°C to +700°C, making it suitable for various applications such as ovens, freezers, and smokers.
  • Thermocouple Support: The shield is designed to work with a thermocouple of type K, as well as a DS18Bxx digital one-wire sensor. Type K thermocouples are capable of measuring temperatures from -270 to +1372 Celsius, offering high accuracy for a wide range of temperatures.
  • Chip and Connectors: It features the MAX31855 chip, which is a thermocouple-to-digital converter, enabling accurate temperature readings. For connections, it provides a K-type female connector for easy connection of K-type male connectors and screw terminals for secure connections of bare wires from a thermocouple.
  • DS18xx Support: There’s direct support for DS18xx temperature sensors, which can be soldered directly onto the board. This offers additional flexibility for temperature measurement projects.
  • Arduino MKRTHERM Library: For ease of use, the shield has a dedicated Arduino_MKRTHERM library, managing the MAX31855 chip to measure both the ambient and junction temperatures accurately. The library simplifies the process of obtaining precise temperature readings referenced to the temperature of the shield.
