SenseTemp is Now Live

I’m excited to be launching SenseTemp here on Crowd Supply today!

When planning environmental tests of embedded electronics I’m developing, I couldn’t find accurate, small, low-cost, and flexible temperature sensors – so I designed SenseTemp. I’m using it to validate the thermal design around voltage regulators, processors, motor drivers, and other heat-generators in my products.

SenseTemp designed to grow with you – so it’s open source hardware & software and built around the Adafruit Feather standard. The embedded python firmware is easy to modify to expose temperature data the way you want it, and there are a variety of MCU and radio options for it.

Thanks for checking out SenseTemp and I’m excited to see what this great community does with it!

Product Choices



Get your own SenseTemp board, fully assembled and tested. Does not include Adafruit Feather or RTD sensor harness.


SenseTemp Starter Kit

Everything you need to dive into the world of accurate temperature measurement. This kit includes the SenseTemp board, your choice of Feather host (pre-programmed with Python firmware), interconnect headers, and an assembled and tested RTD sensor harness.


SenseTemp TEC

Don't settle for measurement alone - start controlling temperature! Get your own SenseTemp TEC board, fully assembled and tested. This board has all the functionality of the SenseTemp board, with the added ability to control a thermo-electric cooler (TEC, a.k.a. Peltier junction) and drive other devices such as a fan. Does not include Adafruit Feather, RTD sensor harness, or thermo-electric cooler.


SenseTemp TEC Kit

This kit includes the SenseTemp TEC board, your choice of Feather host (pre-programmed with Python firmware), interconnect headers, two-pin power harness, four-pin TEC/fan harness, and an assembled and tested RTD sensor harness. Thermo-electric cooler not included.


RTD Sensor Harness

This cable harness has a single 16-pin IDC header that splits into four strands, each with a four-wire cable terminated in a platinum resistive temperature detector (RTD) element. The ribbon cable is 30 AWG, 0.025” pitch, and has silicone insulation. The harness is compatible with both SenseTemp and SenseTemp TEC.


Thermo-electric Cooler (TEC) Module

This 12 V / 5 A thermo-electric cooler module (a.k.a. Peltier junction) is the perfect companion for the SenseTemp TEC and SenseTemp TEC Kit. The module includes a heatsink and fan. When ordered with the SenseTemp TEC Kit, the kit's TEC/fan harness will be soldered and heat-shunk to the TEC and fan leads, making it plug-and-play with SenseTemp TEC.


Capable Robot Components

Capable Robot Components enables rapid development of autonomous robots by providing technological building blocks to system integrators. Right now, integrators have to develop things they would rather purchase because the right robot-first products don't currently exist. CRC provides proven products which are domain-agnostic, but configurable and adaptable to the integrator's market needs. This allows autonomous system developers to spend more time and effort on domain-specific engineering and testing.
