Due to parts and components going obsolete and becoming unavailable, the 1048_2B has moved to a new processor that is not supported under Phidget21. If you're using our old libraries you must upgrade to Phidget22 before you can make use of this Phidget.

The 1048 allows you to measure extreme temperatures with up to 4 thermocouples. It is great for measuring temperatures in enclosed spaces or in liquids. This Phidget connects to your computer via USB.

Features:

  • Connects J, K, E or T type thermocouple, choose the type in software and convert to degrees Celsius automatically
  • If you have other thermocouple types, you can open the channel in VoltageInput mode and convert it to Celsius manually.

Technical Details:

  • Connection check - API will throw an error if the thermocouple wire becomes disconnected or breaks
  • Measure from a distance - Thermocouples have been known to work with wire segments as long as 100m, while USB and other sensors suffer from voltage drops after 5 or 10m.
