I am still working on this project, as soon as I have a working flow I will post a list of the steps I took to make the Max31865 work. This has been frustrating and poorly documented device. I'd like to help others avoid the hours of reading and trial and error. Stay tuned.....
I'm trying to connect a Max 31865 thermocouple Amplifier to Node Red. I have tried many many things. There is no specific node for it (that I can find). I've tried one from adafruit and it crashed Node Red to the point it would not run unless it was in safe mode. There is this https://github.com/steve71/MAX31865 but I've put it in a python shell node and it doesn't work.
I'd like to know these things-
1- is there a simple node that will just work with this board?
a- if so can i just install it from the Node -Red dashboard?
2- Is it possible to use the above link to run the python code in Node Red?
a- if so how?
3- If I can use this Python code, where should the library go?
4- I'm not set on any method to read this temp probe, all I want is to get usable data to control a process for my oven. I would be happy to use Voodoo but I'm much more familiar Node Red and I'm out of live chickens.
I would sure appreciate some help with this. I'm new to this whole thing and analog to digital conversion in not something I can figure out.
Also... there is a node called Max31855 and 31856. I've tried those and they doesn't seem to work either. thank you again.
