I have been a lurker for a few years now, and have run into an area where I have hit a wall. I have used a lot of DS18B20 Thermocouples for kegerator and space heater projects and was hoping to start using some K-Type thermocouples for a coffee roasting project and some beer brewing upgrades, but I cannot for the life of me get the Adafruit MAX31856 to work with a Photon. There is a Particle library ‘MAX31856TC’ for this board but no example and I am struggling to create code to work with it. I have tried porting the Adafruit library (which looks much different than the current Particle library), example code and using modified MAX31855 libraries to no avail.
I was hoping there was some example code out there to pull temperatures from this board using Particle. Hopefully this will also help out many others in the future, as there aren’t any Particle examples I could dig up for the updated board.
Thank you so much in advance and Cheers!
