DB18B20 initiate conversion

Post by Stuart »

Is it possible with AnnexRDS to, separately, initiate a temperature conversion, and then to read the result? As far as I can see the TEMPR$ command is a blocking command, pausing activity for the duration of the conversion (which may be 750mS). The Dallas command set allows you to trigger a conversion and go back later (say on a 1 sec timer interrupt), to read the result, and thus be non-blocking, and this is possible in other systems that I have used.
