If you don't need too much resolution, you could just connect it to an
A/D input and read it with the A/D converter.
If you use a 5V reference (i.e. not adding any extra components), at
0.24V input you'll have 1024*0.24/5V full scale, or a reading of
You can read this periodically, perhaps adding some averaging (how
well smoothed is this voltage?).
