Thermocouples measurement
In the measuring range of a specified thermocouple type, a measured voltage is converted internally into a temperature according to the set transformation. Since the channel measures a voltage internally, the corresponding measuring error in the voltage measuring range must be used.
The thermocouple measurement specifications shown in the following tables only apply if connectors of type ZS2000-3712 are used for cold junction compensation. See chapter Accessories.
The EPP3314-0002 can also be used with an external cold junction, if required. The uncertainties must then be determined for the external cold junction on the application side. The temperature value of the external cold junction must then be communicated to the EPP3314-0002 via the process data for its own calculation. The effect on the measurement of the thermocouples must then be calculated on the system side.
The specifications for the internal cold junction and the measuring range given here apply only if the following times are adhered to for thermal stabilization at constant ambient temperature:
- after switching on: 60 min
- after changing wiring/connectors: 15 min
