how to convert voltage into temperature when using ADC-16

I need help on how to convert voltage into temperature when using ADC-16. Is there an equation to convert it?

Best regards

Thank you for your post.

The method for calculating temperature depends very much on what you are using to measure the temperature. Thermocouples have a non-linear response and it is therefore not possible to use a formula for the calculations. When using the TC-08 unit this is done automatically by the software using a look-up table method.

If you can supply me with some more information as to what sensors you are using then I will be able to advise you further.

Hope this helps

Best Regards

I am interested in doing this also (I emailed you about the ADC-11, you suggested the TC-08).

If I buy a temperature sensor from you can you supply the lookup values? Can you suggest one that would yield the best resolution over a 20-120° C range?

I guess this is a hint that perhaps you still have a market for signal conditioners. :)

Hi Bob

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately we are unable to recommend a sensor to use. You will need to find one yourself, this should fit as well into the input voltage range as possible to maximise resolution.

As we cannot recommend a sensor we are therefore also unable to supply look up table information.

Best Regards
