not logic reading of sensors

Postby wayn2010 » Wed Dec 10, 2014 9:24 pm

I have a pico system with 3 sensors ! suddenly all sensors gave a not logic reading for example -300 C, 260 C ... etc this situation occurred for two weeks and after that the problem solved automatically and the sensors return to Normal situation so how I can solve the problem ? and find the accurate readingsfor those two weeks ?

Can you give some more details of the setup ? The device, the sensors, the system being monitored and the PC doing the monitoring.

It is unlikely that we will be able to recover the true readings, but we may be able to prevent it happening again.

It could be noise pickup, grounding issues, power supply problems, or a property of what is being measured. Until I know the answers to the previous questions I can't say exactly what this would be.

This is part of the EnviroMon product range, therefore I have moved the topic to the appropriate section.

Hi, I assume you are using an EL041 thermocouple converter. I have a few questions:

1) What kind of temperature sensors are you using?
2) How are you physically connecting the temperature sensors?
3) How many temperature sensors do you have?
4) What are you actually measuring?

Best regards
