The MAX31850/MAX31851 cold-junction compensated, 1-Wire® thermocouple-to-digital converters perform cold-junction compensation and digitize the signal from a K-, J-, N-, T-, S-, R-, or E-type thermocouple. The converters resolve temperatures to 0.25°C, allow readings as high as +1768°C and as low as -270°C, and exhibit thermocouple accuracy of 8 LSBs (2°C) for temperatures ranging from -200°C to +700°C.
Communication with the master microcontroller is over a 1-Wire bus that by definition requires only one data line (and ground) for communication. Operating power can be obtained directly from the data line (“parasite power”), eliminating the need for an external power supply.
Each device has a unique 64-bit serial code, which allows multiple units to function on the same 1-Wire bus. Therefore, it is simple to use one microcontroller (the master device) to monitor temperature from many thermocouples distributed over a large area.
Four location address inputs simplify mapping of individual units to specific locations.

Product Detail

The MAX31850/MAX31851 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides the hardware and software graphical user interface (GUI) necessary to evaluate the MAX31850/MAX31851 cold-junction compensated, 1-Wire® thermocouple-to-digital converter.
The EV kit comes with a MAX31850KATB+ soldered to the PCB. This is the K-type thermocouple version of the device. Other thermocouple types can be evaluated by procuring the desired thermocouple, thermocouple socket, and corresponding MAX31850 or MAX31851. Contact the factory for free samples of the devices to match your desired thermocouple type. See the Evaluating Other Thermocouple Types section in the full data sheet for part numbers and additional information regarding other thermocouple types.
