PCAN MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD

SKU #: IPEH-004005-J, IPEH-004005-K, IPEH-004005-T

Configurable System for Data Acquisition and Data Processing

The MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD captures, processes, and transmits data via CAN FD. The temperature is measured via 8 connectors, which are specified for the temperature ranges J, K or T, depending on the product version. Temperatures can be captured in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin and processed with an individual scale and offset. The measurement data is then transmitted via CAN FD or classic CAN.

Data processing, message transmission, and LED display are set up with the free Windows software Thermocouple FD Configuration. The configuration created on the computer is transferred via the CAN bus to the MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD which then runs as an independent CAN node. Multiple devices can be configured independently on a CAN bus. (Requires a PEAK CAN interface.)
