Pickering Interfaces now offers a low-voltage output module ideal for simulating the operation of a thermocouple. The 41-761 occupies a single PXI slot yet can provide up to 32 independently-isolated channels of thermocouple simulation. With ranges of +/-20mV, +/-50mV and +/-100mV, the module is suitable for simulating any thermocouple type.
Available with a choice of 32, 24, 16 or 8 channels, the 41-761 is part of a growing family of thermocouple simulators from Pickering. Each channel provides a low-voltage output across two connector pins capable of providing ±20mV with 0.7µV resolution, ±50mV with 1.7µV resolution and ±100mV with 3.3µV resolution, covering most thermocouple types. The use of two wire outputs and isolation from ground ensures that the 41-761 can be used to accurately simulate low voltages even in the presence of common mode voltages in the system.
