The MicroTC-* Linear Thermocouple Amplifier is Michigan Scientific’s smallest thermocouple amplifier package. A standard miniature male thermocouple connector plugs directly into the unit, and solder terminals on the back allow easy connection for power and signal. A thru-hole in the center of the unit allows it to be mounted to a surface or tied to the mating connector.
The amplifier provides cold junction compensation and amplifies the thermocouple signal to a linear 5 mV/°C over a measurable range of -50 to +400°C. The measurable range expands to -200 to 1360°C with the use of post-processing polynomials. The amplifier accepts a wide power supply range, and separate configurations are available for dual or single power supplies.
MicroTC-D vs. MicroTC-S
The MicroTC-* is available in configurations for dual-supply (MicroTC-D) or single-supply (MicroTC-S) power. Mechanically, these two options are identical except for the elimination of the V- terminal in the single-supply unit. Electrically, the single-supply unit cannot measure temperatures below 5 °C. The upper measurement limit is the same for both models.
