NEW PRODUCT -Thermocouple Amplifier (MAX6675) breakout board

Max6675 Lrg

NEW PRODUCT -Thermocouple Amplifier (MAX6675) breakout board. Thermocouples are very sensitive, requiring a good amplifier with a cold-compensation reference. The MAX6675 does everything for you, and can be easily interfaced with any microcontroller, even one without an analog input. This breakout board has the chip and bypass capacitor 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). Goes great with our 1m K-type thermocouple.

  • Works with any K type thermocouple
  • 0 to 1024 degree C output in 0.25 degree increments
  • 3.3 to 5v power supply and logic levels
  • SPI data output requires any 3 digital I/O pins.

Hey we even have a handy tutorial on thermocouples which includes an Arduino library, wiring diagrams and example code. How easy is that?

Oh, shh, don’t tell anyone but there’s a typo on the silkscreen, it should say MAX6675 not MAX7765…we’ll fix that one up on the next PCB run!

These boards are in stock and shipping now – pick one up today!
