Water Proof Cased
Large Capacity
Approved for Power Station Use

The function of this reference unit differs from other cased systems in that the temperature of the metal block in which the thermocouple and copper leads are inserted, actually varies with ambient temperature. A separate output signal is produced which is proportional to the difference between the environmental temperature and the actual reference temperature. The output signal can be fed directly into a computer/data logger to give accurate compensation over a large ambient range. A thermal reservoir, heavily insulated, contains the reference junction probes. The reservoir temperature slowly follows the ambient temperature; an electrical compensation device is thermally integrated with the reservoir and thus senses the reservoir temperature. The device produces an output proportional to the difference between the reservoir temperature and the reference temperature (usually 0°C).

This is the signal the computer/data logger uses to compensate for the temperature of the reference probes junctions.

The output signal can be in the form of a DC mV output, 4-20 mA or from a platinum resistance thermometer.
Please discuss prior to order.

Units are housed in robust weatherproof enclosures to IP66 incorporating bottom gland plate. Fixing lugs for wall mounting are provided. Easy access t terminal rails and block assembly is via a lockable hinged front door.
