Papouch is a Prague-based company which produces industrial devices, and (as far as I know) the only thermometer which is able to communicate via USB. Check http://www.papouch.com. This utility can be used to obtain data from the Papouch TMU USB thermometer. The program is started immediately after the thermometer is pluged into the linux computer. The device sends the temperature in simple ASCII format every few seconds. Everytime a value is send, papouch-tmu utility reads the temperature and stores it into file /var/run/papouch-tmu/temperature. Program stops automatically when the thermometer is unplugged.
The utility is coming with the munin plugin prepared.
