DIY Temperature and Humidity Sensor Using DHT11 and PIC microcontroller

Temperature And Humidity Project

Here is a cool project that we found on Hackalog.

As you all know there are many useful applications of temperature and relative humidity measurements sensors. They are readily that are available on the market consisting of both temperature and humidity sensors, signal conditioning, Analog to Digital Conversions (ADC), calibration and communication interface built in single module packages.

These versatile sensors have reduced the complexity of the design and decreased the project cost. Many hobbyists will find it easy to interface these types of sensor with a microcontroller for practical applications.

In this project, a  DHT11 sensor is used to measure the temperature and relative humidity of the area, and then the value is fed to the PIC16F628A microcontroller which will display it using a 16 x 2 Character LCD. Try this easy project and you will surely enjoy the practical applications of the temperature and humidity sensor.

Measuring Temperature And Humidity Sensor design

The DHT 11 Sensor comes in a single row 4-pin package and works with a 3.5 to 5.5 V power supply. The temperature range is from 0-50°C with an accuracy of ±2°C. It’s relative humidity ranges from 20-95% with the accuracy of ±5%.

    • The diode is a temperature sensor by itself due to the fact that it’s transfer characteristic is dependent of the temperature.
