Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and integrate into .NET I have two of these in the lab and use them all the time to monitor test chamber temperatures. Easy to integrate the measurements into .NET code through the use of the virtual serial port

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading description regarding software The webpage indicates that this includes software and a manual. The "quick start" sheet (see picture) that comes with it says there's a manual and a software disk. Customer service indicated the software is a download (yeah, I know), but they would check and get back to me. Never heard from them again. Not all of our lab computers have internet access. Yes, I know how to transfer the files, but the promised disk that I thought I was paying for would have been appreciated. I did get a one sheet "quick-start" instruction, but definitely nothing I would call a "manual". Web page and included minimal documentation should be corrected to not indicated "included" software and manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Device This is a very useful basic thermocouple datalogger that is extremely portable. Does exactly what it says. Good for quick setups and spontaneous measurements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised, bought another one. Bought this to monitor device temperature on a PCB that we had to heat and maintain at 125C. Worked perfectly. Logged temp at ~1 Hz.

When I plug a thermocouple into UTC-USB it does automatically begin showing temperature (seemingly correctly), but on the channels tab it shows it as a "K" type thermocouple when it is definitely a "J" type. How do I change that?

What is the lowest possible "sample time" (i.e. highest sampling frequency) possible with the thermocouple version of this device? The manual indicates 100 Hz "bandwidth," but specifically for the pressure transducer version...

Asked by: interested
Thank you for your question. The software that monitors UTC-USB has shortest logging interval of 1 sec.

How can I add the line for ground for this equipment connection? Would you provide the diagram?

Asked by: Louis123
There is no provision for a ground on UTC-USB as it is not required.

Do you have a product like this Universal USB thermocouple connector that uses wireless USB to connect to a PC instead of wired?

Asked by: KenL
Hello, thank you for your question. You can take a look at our UWTC-2 wireless transmitters with the UWTC-REC1 receiver for your consideration.

I need a turnkey temperature monitoring solution I can plug into a PC running Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS). Do you have an apt/script/driver we can use or are we on our own with a prayer, and a protocol reference document?

I have a utc-usb module withh sn 1909111. Somehow the offsets for the S/N in the software got zeroed out, so its not reading right. Do you have a record of the offsets or know if there is a way to recover? Thanks, in advance.

Asked by: dhaya
That is not something that is repairable in the field please contact customer service to have the unit brought in for repair.
