What Exactly is Cold Junction Compensation? How Does It Relate to the Use of Thermocouples as Temperature Sensors?

Written by Dan Jackson, TEGAM Product Manager I was recently asked, “What does Cold Junction Compensation do?”  This question requires that I summarize how thermocouples work and the physics behind them. A thermocouple develops a thermoelectric voltage based upon the principle known as the Seebeck Effect. Now, what is the Seebeck Effect? In the 1800s, Thomas…

How Does A Digital Thermometer Work?

How do Digital Thermometers Work? Thermometers used to be simple. First, there was a glass tube filled with a liquid that expanded up the tube as the temperature increased. We all understood how that worked. Then came the bi-metal thermometers. They were made from a layered strip of 2 metals with different coefficients of expansion…

Infrared: Non-Contact Temperature Measurement

What is Infrared? How is Infrared Used for Temperature Measurement?   Infrared Thermometers use infrared energy is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between the red end of visible light and microwaves. Every form of matter with a temperature above absolute zero (0 K) emits infrared radiation relative to its temperature. Infrared energy is a…

RTD Thermometers: Reading Temperature

Reading Temperature RTD, PRTD, PT100: What’s the Difference?   Let TEGAM Explain: An RTD is a Resistance Temperature Detector. Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD) use the physical properties of metals where the resistance changes proportionally with temperature. This change is much more linear than a thermocouple. The resistance change is defined by the composition of the…

What is a Thermocouple?

What is a Thermocouple? What exactly is a thermocouple? It is two wires of dissimilar metals that produce a thermoelectric voltage when the two ends are at different temperatures. There are three “families” of materials from which thermocouples are made. (See Charts Below) Some History on Thermocouples In the 1820’s Thomas Seebeck experimented with a…
