TC-08 data logger providing values in channel without thermocouple

Post by garywaynemack »

I was setting up the TC-08 data logger to collect temperature from 3 channels usin Type T thermocouples.
I connected the first 2 thermocouples the channel 1 and 2 but not channel 3. The logger provided me with temperatures for channel 3 ? whats up.

Hi Gary,

I'm reminded of the fact that the TC-08 will show the ambient temperature from measurements of the cold junction temperature for the channel, inside the unit, as soon as the channel is enabled. So, if this is what you were referring to then there is no need to send the device in to us.

Regards,
