Open or Broken Thermocouple and the TC 08

Postby Guest » Tue Aug 17, 2004 6:16 pm

I am interested in using the TC 08 to log furnace temperatures. I am concerned about the thermocouple breaking, becoming an open circuit. How would the TC 08 indicate this to me?

Hi Asa

Thank you for your post.

The TC-08 unit has no way of knowing whether a thermocouple is broken. If the thermocouple is broken it will give out a floating reading so will produce erratic results that will probably not correlate to what you would expect.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
