What do I need ?

Postby Pablox » Fri Feb 10, 2012 12:18 pm

What's the best Pico options for me, to view the following on a pc screen in real time.Speed is not important and logging is not so important.

5 of K type thermocouples
5 individual (non grounded) 4-20ma loops

Hi Pablox,

The most suitable device for you would be the TC-08 Thermocouple Data Logger (USB):

http://www.picotech.com/thermocouple.html

A Single Channel Terminal Board can also be used with the device which will allow you to connect a 4-20mA sensor to it. You would need to connect 5 of these devices to the TC-08 device.

Further information on the board may be found in the manual:

http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/SmallTerminalBoardUsersGuide-2.pdf

Details of the thermocouples that we sell can be found at:

http://www.picotech.com/thermocouples.html

You can connect two of these devices to a PC and view the data using our PicoLog software. This can be downloaded for free from:

http://www.picotech.com/software.html

In step 1, select the TC-08 (USB), then in step 2 select PicoLog R5.22.4.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Thanks for the reply m8.
Just wondering would this be the single channel board that I need rather than the "small board" you posted.

Hi Pablox,

Thanks for spotting that - looks like I misread the title of the document :oops:

It is the single channel board as you have posted.
