The TC-08 thermocouple data logger is designed to measure a wide range of temperatures using any thermocouple that has a miniature thermocouple connector.
All popular types of thermocouple are supported, allowing an effective temperature range of –270 to +1820 °C (the actual temperature range depends on the thermocouple being used).
Temperature data acquisition with the TC-08 is very easy: simply plug the TC-08 into a USB port on your computer (no external power required), connect your thermocouples, and you are ready to measure temperatures. Easy-to-use PicoLog data acquisition software is supplied with the TC-08, allowing you to start measuring and recording temperatures with the minimum effort. The intuitive PicoLog user interface makes it easy to set how frequently you want to take a measurement, and the number of measurements you want to take.
In today’s modern business, the health and performance of data servers and network infrastructure are vital every day. The cost to the business is can be considerable if something were to fail, and trust me, it often does. Failures are much more likely to occur if room temperatures are not kept cool. However, excessive cooling can cost businesses huge sums of money with rising energy costs. The solution is a balance between efficient use of IT hardware and just enough cooling to keep the temperature optimum.
Within Pico Technology, we use our own energy and temperature data loggers to monitor data servers and infrastructure. Using a low power Raspberry Pi as the host, a PicoLog CM3 to monitor current uses on 3 phases, and a TC-08 thermocouple logger to record numerous temperatures around the room and within the hard disk racks, data is acquired to PicoLog Cloud. Using the PicoLog Cloud API, that data is then sent to a 3rd party resource monitoring tool which gathers hundreds of other server metrics to create a dashboard, with real-time alerts.
