Oscilloscope temperature sensor or transducer
« on: October 10, 2019, 03:16:38 am »
I am in need of a temperature sensor or transducer for an oscilloscope.
 
Currently running an experiment with a 15A circuit breaker in an elevated ambient temperature.  Seeing how an elevated ambient temperature effects the trip curve,

I can measure & record the current over a 12 hour period (fluke 189), but cannot record a correlated temperature reading. 

My two channel scope (fluke 196C) seem to be part of the solution, but having trouble finding a temperature probe for the second channel.

The temperature extremes range from 20 to 75 degrees C. 

Would like to find a plug & play solution.
Advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise.

I would just record it separately with some data logger and correlate when processing the data.

You need one of those temp sensor signal conditioning modules that take temp sensor as input ( TC, RTD or thermistor) and outputs 10V output.
Or like KaneTW said, simply log it separately and correlate data. It doesn't have to be synchronised to microsecond.
