Not without a lot of work. I broke out all of the remaining pins on the MEGA, so they are available, but the additional support circuits ( transistors, diodes,ect..) would have to be wired in separately. Version 2.0 of the shield will include all of the additional components. I'll post the design files after I create a prototype first. 10 PcB's is the minimum order, so there will be "spare PcB's" available.

Buy any chance would you be willing to ship it internationally?

I'm willing to ship anywhere in the world-LOL. It's the US government that decides whether you'd get it or not. I'll have to read up to see if there's any International shipping restrictions to your country. If not- I'd be more than happy to. If there are- I'll post the build files + all the info you'd need to build the shield yourself.

As O2surplus says, it would be a lot of work. Some pin outs have changed. I'm going to create a thread soon.

Bump: What do the parts cost for the shield?

Wow!

Holy [curse word] Rob! That interface looks awesome! The hardware looks really great as well!

$15 PcB + components + a couple of $ in consumables = $35

That's been my cost on average. But I buy in bulk- LOL

That's not to bad, looks like a lot of parts in the list.

Thanks AnotherHobby, you've inspired me. I think you'll be quite surprised when you see it running, I'm gonna make a video later.

I have the 5" sainsmart display http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00INKB526?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
I should be done in about a month or so.

Edmonton is great, but as far as I'm concerned our mall is over rated and a waste of a few good city blocks.

EDIT: I should also mention, the link above, it says the display has an IC which can store images, well that's not true. If it does has a IC chip sainsmart isn't telling me how to use it, I've contacted them a few times about it but they are useless for support. So don't get excited about that, this is nothing more than a touch display, images still need to go on a SD card.

Do any of you have multiple one wire thermometer on the same bus? I've seen the schematic but was wondering how to poll the different thermometers in code.

Do you mean hooking more than one probe to a single pin?

yup, you can do that or you can hook it to another pin. I was wondering what you guys are doing in coding my controller.

It's a little involved hooking to the same bus, you have to find the device's address.
It might be easier for my sanity to just use different pins.

It's actually pretty easy to share a pin. There's a sketch called "one wire address finder", that will tell you the address of your hardware. The addresses below are for mine and probably won't work for you. I added the file as an attachment.

Code:
#include <OneWire.h> // network library to communicate with the DallasTemperature sensor, 
#include <DallasTemperature.h>  // library for the Temp sensor itself

// Pin for temperature sensors
#define ONE_WIRE_BUS 47     

// Setup a oneWire instance to communicate with any OneWire devices
OneWire oneWire(ONE_WIRE_BUS);

// Pass our oneWire reference to Dallas Temperature. 
DallasTemperature sensors(&oneWire);    

DeviceAddress waterSensor = { 0x28, 0xA6, 0xA0, 0xB5, 0x05, 0x00, 0x00, 0xE6 };
DeviceAddress airSensor = { 0x28, 0x73, 0x36, 0xB5, 0x05, 0x00, 0x00, 0xE2 };
DeviceAddress lightSensor = { 0x28, 0x4F, 0xCA, 0xCF, 0x05, 0x00, 0x00, 0x46 };

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);

  Wire.begin();

  sensors.begin();           //start up temperature library
  sensors.setResolution(waterSensor, 12);
  sensors.setResolution(airSensor, 12);
  sensors.setResolution(lightSensor, 12);
}

void loop()
{  
}

void checkTemps()
{
   float rawTemp = sensors.getTempF(waterSensor);
   myGLCD.printNumF(rawTemp, 1, 75, 193);

   rawTemp = sensors.getTempF(airSensor);
   myGLCD.printNumF(rawTemp, 1, 175, 193);

   rawTemp = sensors.getTempF(lightSensor);
   myGLCD.printNumF(rawTemp, 1, 275, 193);
}
If you change
Code:
rawTemp = sensors.getTempF(lightSensor);
to
Code:
rawTemp = sensors.getTempC(lightSensor);
it will display celsius instead of fahrenheit, no need for formulas.
