General Information

Columbus Instruments' Iso-Thermex is a computer controlled multi-channel thermocouple thermometer. Thermocouple sensors plug into the Iso-Thermex which converts the microvolt levels into a digital signal sent to the control computer via the RS-232 serial communication standard. The Iso-Thermex system supports up to 256 "T"-type thermocouples ("J" & "K"-type thermocouples are optionally supported) and comes calibrated for sensing temperatures over the range of -50° to +50° centigrade. Resolution within the standard range is 0.015° and accuracy is ± 0.1° centigrade. The Iso-Thermex is manufactured with medical grade isolation. The instrument has been hi-pot tested to 2000 VAC and has leakage currents of less than 20 microamperes.

The Iso-Thermex monitors 16 thermocouples. Multiple Iso-Thermex units can be connected together to support up to 256 measurement points via a single RS-232 connection.

Windows software is provided with Iso-Thermex that allows tabular and graphical representation of the recorded temperatures. Experiments may be configured that automate periodic temperature measuring. The recorded information may be stored in a disk file and/or printed on the host computer's printer. Readings may be taken at user-specified intervals at rates as high as 10 readings per second. Additional features of the software include 1-,2- and 3-point calibration and on-screen help.
