SLOS887E September 2014 – December 2018 TMP112-Q1
A fault condition exists when the measured temperature exceeds the user-defined limits set in the T(HIGH) and T(LOW) registers. Additionally, the number of fault conditions required to generate an alert can be programmed using the fault queue. The fault queue is provided to prevent a false alert as a result of environmental noise. The fault queue requires consecutive fault measurements in order to trigger the alert function. Table 10 lists the number of measured faults that can be programmed to trigger an alert condition in the device. For T(HIGH) and T(LOW) register format and byte order, see the High- and Low-Limit Registers section.
