I am having considerable problems using a USB TC-08 with versions v5.15.6 7 & v5.17.1 Picolog. My application is using a trailing 9m K-type probe for thermal profiling of a continuous furnace. The PC is enabled with windows XP service pack 2.
i) Offsets (compared to handheld calibrated loggers) of ~300 to 400Â°C below the actual temperatures.
ii) Stopping during profile runs
iii) Spurious readings between channels
I have used TC-08's many times in conjunction with Picolog software and have never had an issues. This is starting to become a problem as i require decent, stable data to validate new processes.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
