Digital temperature measuring

Posted on Feb 9, 2013

The output voltage of a thermocouple is converted into frequency measured by a digital frequency meter. The output thermocouple signal is proportional to the temperature difference between the hot junction and the thermostat kept at 0°C, it drives the voltage-to-frequency converter changing the analogue input signal into the output frequency with the conversion ratio adjusted in such a way, that the frequency is equal to the measured temperature in Celsius degrees, e.g., for 350°C the frequency value is 350 Hz.
