I've got a TMP36 temperature sensor of which I'm trying to read the value of using an Arduino Uno. I know that the sensor has an accuracy of -/+ 2 degrees celsius but my readings are peak far past this range.
I soldered three wires onto the three legs of the sensor. I hadn't exposed the legs (and thus) the sensor to the heat of soldering for that long a time, but could this have damaged the sensor?
Also the three wires I've soldered on are about 50cm in length and are twisted together, could this cause interference of the voltages?
