The DT9872 from Data Translation is the RTD (resistance temperature detector) version of the TEMPpoint temperature measurement instrument product line. The instrument, designed for high accuracy and industrial robustness, allows direct RTD measurements with a PC. The device features no warm-up time, according to the company. And temperature values can be viewed, graphed, exported to Excel, and enable limit checking for control or monitoring of a manufacturing process. The unit is designed for precision and productivity with 48 four-wire RTD inputs with Kelvin sensing to eliminate measurement errors. Users can attach platinum 100 Ω, platinum 500 Ω, or platinum 1000 Ω RTDs and mix and match these with voltage inputs for measurement versatility.
