ADC 16 thermocouple K

Postby nicolas.dimier » Fri May 02, 2008 7:44 am

Hi,

I've got a ADC16 and thermocouples K. I'm asked to use thermocouples with this ADC 16, but I think I cannot use thermocouples directly plugged on ADC16, because of the cold junction, the amplification of the signal and the scaling factor.

Do I need a conditioner? Which one?

I'm just starting a new job and I wonder why a ADC16 has been choosen just to use thermocouples whereas the TC08 is made for that?

Thanks

Hello Nicolas,

You are correct regarding both the ADC-16 and TC-08, however, it is possible to adapt the ADC-16 to use a thermocouple, and that will require some work on your part.

Please review the information provided in the ADC-16 Teminal Board user guide http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/adc16_terminal_board_instructions-en.pdf
