High-Speed 8-Channel Thermocouple Interface Card

Item# TCIC-FULL-ENC

High-Speed 8-Channel Thermocouple Interface Card TCIC-FULL-ENC TCIC-FULL-ENC
  • 8 Thermocouple Channels
  • Accepts Thermocouple Types J, K, T, E, R, S, or ±500 mV Inputs
  • High-Speed USB Interface
  • Optional RS-232/RS-485 Communications


The TCIC Series comprises low-cost, high-speed thermocouple temperature measurement data acquisition cards with USB interface. TCIC cards use an 8-channel, high-resolution A/D converter with on-board noise filters. On-board cold junction compensation and temperature conversion enable standalone operation. The card also has 8 opto-isolated outputs that can be activated based on individually programmable high/low limit setpoints for each thermocouple channel.

Each TCIC card is supplied with Windows software that displays temperature data in digital meter, analog meter, or strip chart format. Data for all 8 channels can be logged to an Excel-compatible file. A LabVIEW demonstration vi and complete programming examples in .NET are also included.
