MiniPiio Thermocouple

MiniPiio Thermocouple is a single channel temperature measurement add-on board using Type-K thermocouples.

The MAX31855 is a sophisticated thermocouple-to-digital converter. It features a built-in 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for thermocouple measurement. In addition it also contains a cold-junction sensor for compensation temperature sensing and correction.

The MAX31855 resolves temperatures to 0.25°C. It allows readings as high as +1800°C and as low as -270°C and exhibits thermocouple accuracy of ±2°C for temperatures ranging from -200°C to +700°C for K-type thermocouples.

– Works with any K type thermocouple
– Temperature range = -200°C to +1350°C output
– Resolution 0.25 degree
– Accuracy is ±2°C
– Internal cold junction temperature reading
– SPI bus interface
– Two SPi Chips Selects (!CE0 and !CE1)

You can find it at our Tindie store
