Thermo J click – measuring temperatures up to 1200°C

The temperature is dropping, but the number of click boards™ in our range is constantly growing.

Thermocouples are one of the most common ways to measure temperature. They are easy to use and efficient. The new click board™ in our shop uses a thermocouple type J.

Thermo J click

Thermo J click is a temperature measurement click board™, which uses a thermocouple type-J probe, connected to a PPC-SMP-J onboard connector. The active part of the Thermo J click is MCP9600 by Microchip – a thermocouple EMF to temperature converter, with 1.5°C of maximum accuracy.

The measuring range of this click board™ goes from -150°C all the way to 1200°C. This really depends on the type of probe you use for measuring.

How hot is 1200°C?

We all know that water boils at 100°C and that 36°C is the average temperature of the human body. But what happens at higher temperatures?

841°C is the temperature measured on coals just before people performed the famous Firewalking ritual, and walked across the hot coals.

And what about 1200°C? That is the highest temperature of lava when it’s first ejected from the volcano!
