usb tc-08 temperature logger

Postby condor » Sat Jun 01, 2013 2:07 am

I purchased 2ea. usb tc-08 temperature loggers and I am currently reading a total of 13 thermocouples. I would like to connect 2ea. vacuum transducers to one of these units. How can this be accomplished and which model of transducer
do I need to purchase? The units are currently being used in a composite oven and we need to have the vacuum recorded in
inches of hg.
Thanks

Hi condor,

The single channel terminal board allows the connection of 4 - 20mA sensors or voltages from 0 - 5V to be input into the TC-08:

Unfortunately, I'm not able to advise on transducers - you could try an electronics specialist where you are located.

You would have to set up a scaling file in the PicoLog Recorder software.

I hope this helps.
