The MDS41 is a high precision digital benchtop meter, with two models which accept either thermocouple or RTD input. The large easy-to-read 0.5" (13 mm) display features 6 digits, allowing 0.01° resolution. The thermocouple input model has 9 thermocouple types in memory, any one of which can be selected through the front panel. The RTD input model can be programmed for a linear resistance or one of two 100 ohm platinum curves, 0.00385 or 0.00392. The unit is switchable to °C/°F/K.
The single-channel unit includes a universal rear connector which accepts either the miniature or standard quick disconnect connector. The 10-channel MDSS uses screw terminals for temperature input.
Optional scalable analog output is available and can be ordered as a 0 to 10 Vdc or 4 to 20 mA. The analog output provides a retransmission of the measured temperature for recorders or dataloggers.
