The DP63300-TC thermocouple meter accepts inputs from standard thermocouples and precisely linearizes them. A full 4-digit display accommodates a wide range of temperature inputs. The unit automatically compensates for cold junction, NBS linearity and the meter’s zero and span. The meter features a readout choice of either Fahrenheit or Celsius with 0.1 or 1° resolution. Display prompts and front panel buttons aid the operator through set-up and operation. With a few simple steps the unit can be used as a millivolt meter. This mode is useful in monitoring and displaying the actual voltage produced at the thermocouple probe junction and as an aid in troubleshooting for a faulty thermocouple probe. The meter provides a peak “HI” and valley “LO” reading memory with selectable capture delay time. The capture delay is used to prevent detection of false peak or valley readings that may occur during start-up or unusual process events. The peak and valley readings are stored at power-down so that process limits can be monitored over any length of time. Programmable digital filtering enhances the stability of the reading. All setup data is stored in E2PROM, which will hold data for a minimum of 10 years without power. The meter has several built-in diagnostic functions to alert operators of any malfunction. Extensive testing of noise interference mechanisms and full burn-in makes the indicator extremely reliable in industrial environments. The front bezel meets NEMA 4X (IP65) requirements for wash-down applications.
