Eight mini-connectors for thermocouples of the types J, K, or T are available for temperature measurement, depending on the product version. A D-Sub connector enables the CAN communication. The measuring units supports the CAN FD standard and is also downward compatible to classic CAN 2.0 A/B.
PEAK-System's MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD enables temperature measurement to be integrated directly into automotive test benches or industrial plants employing CAN FD communication. The measuring unit it suitable for harsh environments thanks to its rugged aluminum casing and its thermal resistance ranging from -40° to +85°C. The parameters for data processing, CAN communication and LED indication are generated with user-friendly Windows software and transferred via CAN to the MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD. Various devices can be operated and configured independently on a single CAN bus.
