pydigitemp 1.1.post1

Python implementation of 1-Wire protocol

Python implementation of 1-Wire protocol.

Originally written to replace digitemp utility in my pet project and get direct access to 1-wire devices. It was created for reading DS1820 temperature sensor connected to RS232 serial port through DS9097 adapter.

Supported Hardware


  • DS9097 - COM port adapter which performs RS-232C level conversion.
  • Custom 1-wire serial port interface (see below).



Find ROM codes for all connected devices:

from digitemp.master import UART_Adapter
from digitemp.device import AddressableDevice

# ['108739A80208006F', '10A75CA80208001A']

Get temperature:

from digitemp.master import UART_Adapter
from digitemp.device import DS1820

bus = UART_Adapter(0)  # DS9097 connected to COM1 (/dev/ttyS0)

# only one 1-wire device on the bus:
sensor = DS1820(bus)

# specify device's ROM code if more than one 1-wire device on the bus:
sensor = DS1820(bus, rom='10D67E5B02080037')

# display sensor's information

# get temperature
# 25.48

1-wire serial port interface
