TC-32 DAQami offsets


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am going to be performing a calibration as a system on a TC-32 with thermocouples placed in an oven. I am going to use a Fluke 1552A stick placed in the oven as the standard. Is there an option to adjust an offset for each thermocouple channel using the DAQami program? If not can an offset be programmed or adjusted without using IstaCal and/or performing a calibration of the TC-32 using a voltage source?

You can apply a scaling multiplier and/or offset for each channel in DAQami.

The default is degrees C.  Click on the drop down arrow for Units, and select Custom, the following update to the screen appears.

Once you enter a new label for your units (sorry it cannot be "⁰C" nor the same for all channels), you can enter a multiplier and/or offset to correct for your temperature standard.

As stated above, no.

The original thinking was User's would use several sensors with the same scaling for the same, custom units.  So same multiplier and offset would be applied to any other channels you set to those particular custom units.  That was the intent.  But thinking beyond that, if you select a different label for your units, you can apply a different offset and multiplier for each channel.  At that point you just need to remember the temperature scale you want to use. such as "F"
