The Tc-LCD is a high resolution (16 bit), handheld thermocouple
datalogger with a liquid crystal display. The logger connects to a single external thermocouple probe and also has an internal thermister sensor. The logger accepts Type J,K,N,R and T thermocouple probes. The display shows ambient temperature, thermocouple temperature, battery voltage, logger and alarm status. This logger is designed for indoor use (IP 40) but can be supplied with a TruTrack Seahorse Logger Enclosure for outdoor use. The logger uses the standard NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) equations to calculate, display and log temperatures from the various thermocouple probe types
The Tc-LCD's Universal Miniature Thermocouple Connector Socket can be used to connect type J, K, N, R and T thermocouples
Note: This is the logger accuracy only and does not include inaccuracies in the particular thermocouple probe used.

The Tc-LCD displays logger status and alarm status continuously and can be set to show the internal temperature (cold junction compensation temperature), the thermocouple sensor temperature, the battery voltage and the number of logged samples.Logger status is shown as:
If the logger is waiting for “Start on Trigger” it can be started in the field from the Menu provided on the display.If an Alarm has been triggered the display will show:
both Alarms are triggered Alarm
will be displayed
continuously and 1 and 2 will flash consecutively.
will be displayed if the internal batteries requires

button on the front panel of the Tc-LCD
activates the Menu Display. The Down Arrow can then be used to scroll down through the various Menu Options. When the required menu option is displayed, press Enter to select this option. Menu Options on the Tc-LCD are:
The display will update at 1 second intervals for 1 minute after any button is pushed. It will then slow down to 10 second display updates (this is a power saving feature).
