Precision USB Thermometer Probe
21 October 2010
The Precision USB Thermometer Probe provides a reliable and economical method of measuring temperature utilising a computer or PDA (Host). Each probe is calibrated to provide excellent accuracy and stability. The USB Thermometer Probe measures temperature over the range of -40 to 125 °C with an 0.1 °C resolution and an accuracy of ±0.5 °C. A precision NTC thermistor is combined with a 16-bit analogue to digital converter and a simple USB communication interface to capture real-time temperature data.
Each USB probe incorporates a unique serial number, allowing several probes to monitor temperature at the same time via a direct USB connection or a USB hub. The USB Lite thermometer software converts your PC into a thermometer, chart recorder or data-logger. No external power source or batteries are required - all the power (30 mA max @ 5 volt) is taken from the USB port. The compact design is ideal for a wide range of applications including computer/server room monitoring, warehouse monitoring and display cabinet monitoring.
The USB Thermometer Probe has been designed for integration with OEM custom third-party software applications. With this in mind, the communication protocol is available on request to approved software engineers.
USB Lite Thermometer Software
Each USB thermometer probe is supplied with free of charge USB Lite software and is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7. This software allows the user to monitor temperatures on their PC and log to an Excel spreadsheet for future analysis. PDA software is also available, for further information contact the ETI sales office.
The design of the temperature probe used to physically measure the temperature of the item is important to achieve maximum accuracy. ETI manufactures a range of standard USB Type A thermometer probes with prices starting from £23 each.
