Thermocouples
Extended temperature range measurements


Thermocouples are metal wires of two different compositions that are welded together. The physics of the metal generate a small voltage (the SeeBeck voltage) that depends on the temperature and type of metals chosen.

Using the  DS2760, temperature and voltage can be measured. When linked to a thermocouple, an extended temperature range can be sensed.

The full description was authored by Dan Awtrey in Sensors Jan 2002 or this App Note.

The following thermocouples are supported:
See the man page for details on reading thermocouples based on the DS2760.
