Note: If you're using our old libraries you must upgrade to Phidget22 before you can make use of this Phidget.
The 1048_1B comes pre-assembled in a plastic shell enclosure and you have the option of which length of USB cable you want to include.
You can purchasing the 3036- Mini-USB 60cm Cable.
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 1048 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.
