Thermocouple-based recorders

July 2005 Temperature Measurement

A line of N.I.S.T. traceable, thermocouple-based temperature recorders that can replace costly strip chart recorders in a variety of applications is being introduced by MadgeTech of Warner, New Hampshire.

MadgeTech thermocouple-based temperature recorders feature non-volatile solid-state memories for optimum data security, even if their batteries become discharged, and can be used with a PC for realtime data monitoring. Models include the OctTemp 8-channel unit that will read and record up to 14 563 measurements per channel, the QuadTemp 4-channel unit that handles up to 26 214 per channel, and single channel units that record 16 383 readings.

Providing accuracy within ±0,5°C (at 25°C), and 16-bit resolution, MadgeTech thermocouple-based temperature recorders are capable of reading rate from one every two seconds, to 12 hours (model dependent). Compatible with all common thermocouples including J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, these fully portable, standalone devices are battery powered and can operate up to 10 years uninterrupted, depending on model.
