Title: Rigol DM3058E temperature measurement?
Post by: Dave92F1 on September 09, 2018, 03:28:19 pm
Supposedly this DMM has presets for a Type K thermocouple. http://int.rigol.com/File/TechDoc/20151201/DM3058_DataSheet_EN.pdf (http://int.rigol.com/File/TechDoc/20151201/DM3058_DataSheet_EN.pdf) even says "Thermocouple Cold Terminal compensation is built in the multimeter" (sic).

Anybody here know how to use this? I read the manual and I can't figure it out.

I've done:

  Sensor>Property>Type>Thermocouple
  Sensor>Property>Unit>Degrees C

When I hit "DONE" it says "Please set Para first" (which makes sense, I haven't told it it's a Type K yet).

The manual says to press "TC>Type" and "TC>JUNC", but I can't find these in the menus.

Go to Sensor - Load - select file KITS90 - Read. I just tried it with a type K thermocouple and it works.  :)

The other method you were doing let's you input your own parameters for the sensor.
