MAX31855 averaging readings?

by RosscoS on Fri Nov 16, 2012 4:18 pm

Hi All,
I have just upgraded from the MAX6675 to the MAX31855.
With the MAX6675 to get an average of several readings the code was
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
temp_out = temp0.read_temp(20);

However I cannot figure out how to get averaged readings from the MAX31855.

Thanks in advance for any help!

use a loop to read 5 times in a row, add up all the numbers, then divide by 5
