Hot Little Therm is a digital thermometer which can be connected to an RS-232 serial port of any computer. Looks like this.

Hundreds of sensors on a single serial port!

Each Hot Little Therm device can support many temperature probes. The first 15 can be addressed individually, and the rest can be read all at once. Up to 16 Hot Little Therm devices can coexist on a single serial port. In all, you could have hundreds of distinct temperature sensors for each serial port on your computer.

Chances are, you don't need that many. One sensor is provided with each device and more can be ordered as your requirements dictate.
