Post by Guest » Thu Apr 03, 2008 5:20 pm

I want to use the functions in usbtc08.dll to read the temeprature every 100ms.
I have problems on using 'usb_tc08_get_single'.

How can I read a temperature to a variable?
Please give me an simple example

short usb_tc08_get_single
short handle,
float * temp,
short * overflow_flags,
short units

temp :

Pointer to an array of length [9]. There are 9
channels on the USB TC-08 (8 + cold junction) and
the readings are always placed in the array
subscript corresponding to the channel number.
Channels which are not enabled are filled with
QNaN values.

Hope this helps.
