Question

I need to capture 12 channels of temperature data using 12 thermocouples and aggregate the data. Can I use a USB-2408 and USB-1208LS together with a single instance TracerDAQPro?

Will the software recognize the 2nd USB device and allow me to add 12 channels to the Strip Chart and to the data log?

Yes that is a feature of the Pro version of TracerDAQ.

However, you cannot acquire 12 channels of temperature data using thermocouples using the USB-2408 and USB-1208LS.  When used with thermocouples, the USB-2408 can be configured for only 8 channels.  The USB-1208LS cannot be used with thermocouples, it has insufficient resolution, does not have a +/-78 mV range (required for thermocouples) and does not contain any CJC sensors.
