Thermocouples are very sensitive, requiring a good amplifier with a cold-compensation reference. The MAX31855K does everything for you, and can be easily interfaced with any microcontroller, even one without an analog input. This breakout board has the chip itself, a 3.3V regulator with 10uF bypass capacitors and level shifting circuitry, all assembled and tested. Comes with a 2 pin terminal block (for connecting to the thermocouple) and pin header (to plug into any breadboard or perfboard). Goes great with our 1m K-type thermocouple.
Works with any K type thermocouple
Will not work with any other kind of thermocouple other than K type
-200°C to +1350°C output in 0.25 degree increments - note that K thermocouples have about ±2°C to ±6°C accuracy
Idealink.net was launched by an engineering team from Kuwait University.
The idea of the site is to create an engineering platform in Kuwait and the Gulf to contribute to raising the level of engineering projects and inventions, and also contribute to the manufacture of models and educational products.
