Dual-Channel Wireless Temperature Data Loggers

Data Logger > Wireless DATAQ Instruments is pleased to introduce the EL-WIFI-DTC and EL-WIFI-DTP+. These dual-channel wireless (802.11b compliant) temperature data loggers are capable of buffering over 1,000,000 temperature readings and transmitting that data to a PC via a WiFi router. The EL-WIFI-DTC can acquire temperature from -270 to 1300°C (-454 to 2372°F) using J, Read More

Sub-zero Thermocouple Measurements

Data Logger > Thermocouple “One of the best kept secrets in the instrumentation world is that sub-zero thermocouple measurements require thermocouples that are specially qualified for that application.” Looking at the specs of a typical thermocouple data acquisition system might be a little misleading when it comes to interpreting temperature measurement capability. For example Figure 1 is a Read More

Data Acquisition Tips and Techniques

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements A Guide To Data Acquisition Signal Input Configuration Does a thermocouple signal require isolation? Should the output of a strain gage amplifier be connected as a single-ended or differential input? Is a differential input always a better choice than a single-ended configuration? These fundamental instrumentation questions may not be easy 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

Maximum Thermocouple Wire Length

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple We commonly hear, “What’s the maximum thermocouple wire length I can use with your instrument?” That’s a good question. There are two factors that affect TC cable length: 1. Noise 2. Inaccuracy The longer the cable the more susceptible it is to radiated noise. The TC represents a low impedance source, Read More
