Reading voltage on a thermocuple channel

Go to solution

Hi to everyone

I have a thermofluxmeter sensor that is a thermopile. 

To use it i have to read the voltage it provides and convert it to my measure. Long story short the voltage value are in the identical range of a thermocouple so i would like to use a thermocouple channel but instead of having the converted and compensated value, i just want to obtain the raw voltage out of a channel of a ni 9212 moudle for compact daq. 

Does anybody knows how this can be done? 

Thanks a lot

You can create a DAQmx Voltage task, and setup the channel as one of your thermocouple inputs.

Thanks a lot.

I did it and it works. but just to be sure if i do this way it'll not do any compensation?
