Convert Thermocouple Reading (G Dataflow)

    Last Modified: January 12, 2018

    Converts a thermocouple voltage into a temperature value.


    type of excitation

    The voltage and current reference.

    Name Value Description
    Voltage Reference 0 Specifies using a voltage reference.
    Current Reference 1 Specifies using a current reference.

    Default: Voltage Reference



    A waveform of voltages read from a thermocouple.

    This input supports waveform and double-precision, floating-point data types.


    thermocouple type

    The type of the thermocouple. Refer to your thermocouple user manual for more information about thermocouple types.

    Name Value Description
    B 0 Specifies a type B thermocouple.
    E 1 Specifies a type E thermocouple.
    J 2 Specifies a type J thermocouple.
    K 3 Specifies a type K thermocouple.
    R 4 Specifies a type R thermocouple.
    S 5 Specifies a type S thermocouple.
    T 6 Specifies a type T thermocouple.
    N 7 Specifies a type N thermocouple.

    Default: J


    CJC voltage

    The cold-junction compensation (CJC) reference voltage.

    Default: 0


    CJC sensor

    The type of cold-junction compensation (CJC) sensor you are using.

    Name Value Description
    IC Sensor 0 Specifies an integrated circuit (IC) sensor.
    Thermistor 1 Specifies a thermistor.

    Default: IC Sensor


    temperature units

    The units of temperature this node outputs.

    Name Value Description
    Celsius 0 Returns temperature values in Celsius.
    Fahrenheit 1 Returns temperature values in Fahrenheit.
    Kelvin 2 Returns temperature values in Kelvin.
    Rankine 3 Returns temperature values in Rankine.

    Default: Celsius



    The temperature value in the units specified in temperature units.

    This output returns a waveform or double-precision, floating-point data type depending on the data type of the voltage input.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
