MIKROE THERMO K Click carries the MCP9600 IC from Microchip. Depending on the type of probe it uses the Click can measure temperatures from −200 °C to +1372 °C.
The Click is designed to run either on 3.3V or 5V power supply. It communicates with the target MCU through I2C interface.
THERMO K Click has a PCC-SMP thermocouple connector onboard, suitable for all K-type probes.
MCP9600 IC FROM MICROCHIP
The MCP9600 IC converts thermocouple EMF to degree Celsius with integrated Cold-Junction compensation. It corrects the thermocouple nonlinear error characteristics of eight thermocouple types and outputs ±1.5°C accurate temperature data.
4 ALERT OUTPUTS
THERMO K Click has 4 alert outputs onboard that can be used to detect multiple temperature zones. You can define on which specific temperature the THERMO K Click will send an alarm.
LOW POWER MODES
Low-Power modes are available for battery-powered applications. In shut-down mode the module uses only 2 µA.
NOTE: In order to use THERMO K clik you need to connect the appropriate K-type thermocouple probe (not included in the package) into the PCC-SMP connector.
