Periodic firmware updates for the DI-2008 voltage and thermocouple data logger will include bug fixes, performances improvements and/or feature additions. Click here to download the latest firmware revision. To update the firmware: 1. Start with the DI-2008 disconnected from your PC 2. Hold down the push button on the side of the DI-2008, and connect Read More

Making Parallel Thermocouple Measurements

The question comes up often, “Can I connect a thermocouple to your data acquisition system and a secondary device (i.e. additional monitoring equipment, a controller, etc), at the same time?” The answer is yes. It’s often convenient to make a parallel measurement when using a thermocouple to acquire temperature data, while using the same temperature Read More

The Ability of the DI-245 to Reject Common Mode Voltage

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple > DI-245 The ability of the DI-245 to reject common mode voltage is unmatched in the $75 per channel price range. To demonstrate the ability of the DI-245 to reject common mode (error) voltage, we connected K-type thermocouples to channels 1 and 2. With the thermocouple on channel 2 grounded, we Read More

Thermocouple Assembly

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple Follow these instructions to connect a thermocouple to your miniature connector: Unscrew and remove the top of the miniature connector. Remove the rubber washer from the miniature connector and slide it over the tip of the thermocouple wire. Partially loosen the inside screws. Insert the wires under the appropriate screws and Read More

Synchronized and Distributed Data Acquisition Using DI-1000 Instruments in Hot Strip Steel Mills

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple > DI-1000TC Background The need for data acquisition in a distributed and synchronized manner is required in a variety of applications. Consider a hot strip mill that creates a long steel coil starting from a slab of steel. The process consists of: A pre-heat procedure that heats the initially cold slab Read More

How to Make Safe and Accurate Thermocouple Measurements Using Isolated Instrumentation

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple > DI-1000TC Thermocouples are the most widely used devices for temperature measurements. They are: Rugged; Inexpensive; Simply constructed (welded wires composed of dissimilar metals); Used to measure temperature ranges spanning thousands of degrees; Fast in their response to changes in temperature. But these attractive characteristics do not come without a price. Read More

Thermocouple Measurements Profile Cement Curing Characteristics of Prosthetic Implants

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple > DI-1000TC Introduction It’s obvious that prosthetic implants have changed the lives of countless thousands for the better. Knee, hip, and shoulder replacements are common surgeries today, substituting diseased or damaged joints with synthetic materials that allay pain and simultaneously restore mobility and quality of life. Not as obvious is the Read More

How To Connect and Calibrate Thermocouples Using DI-8B47 Series Amplifiers

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple Thanks to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), thermocouple wire is color coded to indicate thermocouple type and polarity. This takes the guesswork out of connecting thermocouple wires to your DI-718B, DI-718Bx, or DI-788. In this example, we’ll show you how to connect and calibrate a K-type thermocouple using a DI-718B, Read More
