another temp sensor question!
I need some help locating parts for my sensor TMP20. I am interested in making into a probe but i need a cover or boot for the sensor - i would like to have the sensor hooked upan ATmega but a couple feet away. Does TI sell sensors with covers? if not, where is a good place to find boot coveres that work well with these type of sensors?
I assume you're planning to mount the TMP20 on a slender PCB. Is there a reason why you can't leave it exposed for good thermal response?
Based on your first post, I was imagining that you wanted a metal temperature probe or at least something similarly shaped with a TMP20 inside. I sense now that you're just not sure about sealing your application's hardware. Is that right?
I apologize for alluding to this before, but the TMP20 should be fine in open air. If you're concerned about moisture or other contamination, I would think a conformal coating would be sufficient, but I have no personal experience with them.
