Type K Thermcouples compatibility

Post by peiqing » Mon Jul 14, 2008 6:45 am


I have a USB TC-08 Data Logger using Type K thermocouples. I only bought eight thermocouples.

But right now, i need to have more than eight measuring points. Can i use a third party Type K thermocouples on the TC-08? Would there be any measurement inaccuracy if i use the Type K thermocouples with both from PICO and a third party thermocouple?

Hello peiqing,

Type-k is an industry standard, therefore, provided the non-Pico thermocouples comply with Type-k, there should not be an issue.
