ADM00665: K Type Thermocouple Interface


The MCP9600 Evaluation Board is used to digitize the Thermocouple EMF voltage to degree Celsius with +/-1C accuracy. Users can easily evaluate the all device features using a Type K thermocouple. The device also supports Types J, T, N, E, B, S and R. Each of these types are evaluated by replacing the Type K Thermocouple connector with the corresponding connectors (not included).

In addition, evaluation board connects to PC via USB interface. Temperature can be data-logged using Microchip Thermal Management Software Graphical User Interface (GUI).

The MCP9600 is a Thermocouple Electromotive Force (EMF) to temperature converter. This device converts thermocouple EMF to degree Celsius with integrated Cold-Junction compensation. MCP9600 corrects the thermocouple nonlinear error characteristics of eight thermocouple types and outputs ±1.5°C accurate temperature data for the selected thermocouple. The correction coefficients are derived from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) ITS-90 Thermocouple Database.
