Connect a thermocouple to the 1051_2B Phidget TemperatureSensor 1-Input to measure the temperature of an object or area. Plugs directly into a USB port.

Thermocouples are widely used to measure extreme temperatures impossible to measure with other types of sensors.

J, K, E and T thermocouples are directly supported in the library and return the measured temperature in °C.

It is possible to interface other thermocouple types by converting the measured potential returned by the Temperature Sensor into Celsius using the appropriate tables; the formula and links to the tables are described in the User Guide.

Very long thermocouples are okay (even 100m), but if there is measurement stability issues or USB resets, ferrite beads can be added to the thermocouple wire close to the Phidget Temperature Sensor.

Note: The 1051_2B is identical to the 1051_2, except that you have the option of whether you want to include the USB cable.


1051_2B Phidget TemperatureSensor 1-Input comes packaged with

  • A Hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts (M3), 4 plastic spacers)
