PCAN MU-Thermocouple1 CAN

SKU #: IPEH-002205-J, IPEH-002205-K, IPEH-002205-T

Configurable System for Data Acquisition and Data Processing

The Thermocouple Measuring Unit offers connections for 8 thermo-elements for different temperature ranges (J, K, T).

Measurement data can be pre-processed and transmitted via CAN bus using a central microcontroller. Configuration work involves using Windows® software on a computer connected to the same CAN bus.
