Thermocouples are very sensitive, requiring a good amplifier with a cold-compensation reference. The MAX31855K does everything for you, and can be easily interfaced with any microcontroller, even one without an analog input. This breakout board has the chip itself, a 3.3V regulator with 10uF bypass capacitors and level shifting circuitry, all assembled and tested. Comes with a 2 pin terminal block (for connecting to the thermocouple) and pin header (to plug into any breadboard or perfboard). Works perfectly with Adafruit's 1m K-type thermocouple.
  • SPI-controlled
  • Includes ferrite beads and filter capacitor onboard for better stability
  • Works with both Raspberry Pi and Arduino
  • Fully tested and assembled breakout board
  • All headers included (to solder yourself)
  • Screw terminal for thermocouple input
  • Works with any K type thermocouple
  • -200?C to +1350?C output in 0.25 degree increments
