Hey Guys, Im wondering if its possible, or if anyone has managed to get the output (temp reading) off the STC-1000 and into a computer somehow?
Ive asked the googles and nothing has popped up so far.

Cheers

not a techno whiz but I believe it would be easier to hook up an arduino and have that interface with network/pc couple of the guys have done it and I'm sure they'll chime in, and this post would prolly be better off in Electronics and Hardware/Software, Technical brewing thread

What are you trying to do with the data once you have it in the pc?

If you just want a pretty real time graph of what's happening it's probably easier to get a separate data logger.

If you want to control the heating / cooling, then an arduino is probably the easiest way.

There was a user here who set up his temp controller so it tweeted his ferment temp on the hour. Can't remember his name, though.

Easiest would be Arduino or Raspberry Pi + DS18B20 sensor (loads on evilbay), there are libs for this sensor and it's fairly easy to get going if you've had some coding experience.
