The temperatures sensor responds to the temperature surrounding its probe. The higher the temperature it senses, the more signal it sends out.

With the temperature sensor you can use the temperature in the surrounding air to control your circuit. It's especially useful for gathering data when paired with the number Bit set to "value" mode.

The temperature sensor takes a measurement from the environment and translates it into a signal. The higher the temperature it senses, the more signal it sends out to the following Bits in the circuit (making lights brighter and motors turn faster). A small switch on the board lets you choose to measure in either Celsius or Fahrenheit. Each mode operates between 0 and 99 degrees (0-99 Fahrenheit or 0-99 Celsius) and the voltage coming out of the module is proportional to the temperature reading. For example, if it is in Fahrenheit mode, a temperature of 85 degrees will result in an output of 85% power (which will be displayed as 85 on a number module set to value mode). The actual temperature reading comes from the little black chip on the board.
