To convert a thermocouple reading, in microvolts, into temperature, you will need to
use a table containing microvolt readings at various temperatures for the type of
thermocouple that you wish to use. You can obtain these tables from the British
Standards Institute or thermocouple manufacturers.
First, take the cold junction temperature and use this table to convert it to microvolts.
Add this onto the microvolt reading from the thermocouple. Convert the total back to
temperature using this table.
If you are returning the values in degrees there is no need to convert the readings.
I hope this helps.
