Raspberry Pi 4 CPU Temperature Element

The CPU temperature element is used to read the temperature of the Raspberry Pi 4 CPU. This element is only available within Raspberry Pi 4 projects.

The CPU temperature is a sensor element that can be imported into the Element Toolbox through the Add Element Add Element button located in the toolbox from the Embedded tab. Raspberry Pi 4 projects have this element imported by default.


The following properties can be changed for the CPU temperature element:


The name of the element.


The following triggers are available to execute events from within the CPU temperature element:


Execute an event when the source element connected to the CPU temperature triggers.

Temperature Read

Execute an event when temperature data is read.


The following abilities are available for the CPU temperature element when its source element triggers:


Trigger the element(s) that follow the CPU temperature element.

Read Temperature (°C)

Read the temperature (in Celsius) of the computer’s CPU.

Element Resources

Atmosphere includes a selection of resources for users of all levels that demonstrate using the CPU temperature element.
