    type of excitation

    The voltage and current reference.

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

    Use the voltage reference and R1 inputs only with this option.

    Current Reference 1 Specifies using a current reference.

    Use the excitation current input only with this option.

    Default: Voltage Reference

    datatype_icon

    voltage

    The voltage read from a thermistor.

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

    datatype_icon

    voltage reference

    The reference you apply across a resistor of known value in series with your thermistor. Use this input only when you set type of excitation to Voltage Reference.

    Default: 2.5 V

    datatype_icon

    R1

    The value of the resistor in series with your thermistor expressed in ohms. Use this input only when you set type of excitation to Voltage Reference.

    Default: 5000 Ω

    datatype_icon

    excitation current

    The excitation current applied to the thermistor. Use this input only when you set type of excitation to Current Reference.

    Default: 100 µA

    datatype_icon

    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

    datatype_icon

    temperature

    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.
