The Thermocouple measuring unit offers connections for 8 thermoelements for different temperature ranges (J, K, T).

Measurement data can be preprocessed and transmitted via CAN bus using a central microcontroller. Configuration work involves using Windows® software on a computer connected to the same CAN bus.


The configuration requires a PEAK CAN interface.
