Definitions for "Cold Junction Compensation"
Measurement of temperature at thermocouple connections to controller and compensation for the "cold end" junction millivoltage generated here.
Measures the ambient temperature at the connection of the thermocouple wire to the measuring device. This allows for accurate computation of the temperature at the hot junction by the measuring device.
Circuit in a measuring device which resolves the difference between an ambient temperature reference (used when device was calibrated) and the actual operating temperature of the measuring device.
