Using calibrated PT100 probes with PT-104 logger

Post by mcameron » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:41 pm

I recently sent away a PT104 and 4 PT100 probes for calibration. The calibration sheets that were returned contain the applied temperature, the temperature that the pt-104 measured and the temperature error.

Can anyone tell me how i can get this info into the picolog software so that i can start measuring using the calibration data?

thanks in advance

You will need to apply channel scaling using the values from the calibration report in a table.

Hi,

Could you please confirm the format of the table. I can see the example in the PicoLog Self-Help Guide:

aa bb
cc dd

where the first column is the indicated reading, and the second is the true reading. Which column should the reference temperature be in (the actual temperature that we are trying to adjust the thermometers to read)?

Thank you!
