Thermocouples are widely used to measure extreme temperatures impossible
to measure with other types of sensors.
J, K, E and T thermocouples are directly supported in the library
and return the measured temperature in °C.
It is possible to interface other thermocouple types by converting
the measured potential returned by the Temperature Sensor into Celsius
using the appropriate tables; the formula and links to the tables
are described in the User Guide.
Very long thermocouples are okay (even 100m), but if there is measurement
stability issues or USB resets, ferrite beads can be added to the
thermocouple wire close to the Phidget Temperature Sensor. See our
tutorial on Addressing EMI Issues.
