WHITEPAPER: Minimizing Measurement Error When Making Thermocouple to Transmitter Connections

HOW TO PREVENT TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT ERRORS

This white paper will benefit you in 3 ways:

It will give you a keen understanding of the three basic laws of thermocouples: Homogeneous materials, Intermediate Metals, and Successive/Intermediate Temperatures.
It is helpful in weeding out potential sources of error in a thermocouple measurement system.
It’s also valuable in properly selecting and applying the components commonly used to connect thermocouples to instruments.

Topics Discussed:

Background of temperature measurement
Principals of building a thermocouple
Three fundamental principles of thermocouples
Considerations for cold junction and cold junction compensation
How connection materials impact the performance of your system
Important principles to keep in min
