I am measuring a thermocouple by AD7124-4 application.

I used to get help before in this site.

I was really good. and there was no problem.

but another problem is occurred.


I have a problem when I calculate a temperature from a K-type thermocouple data.

To get the temperature by thermocouple, I got two temperature a "cold" junction and "hot" junction temperature for the thermocouple as follow the 7124 datasheet.



my calculation is  as follows:

    total_temperature = Hot_junction + Cold_juntion


but when I heat the "cold" junction, the total_temperature is changed.

My developed controller has the cold-junction inside. So when i supply power, the controller is heated

and total_temperature value is changed.


My question is :

   1) is the calculation right?

   2) Does the thermocouple has the feature that the total_temperature always get effected by the "cold" junction           temperature?

    3) If number 2) is right, how can i reduce effect of the "cold" junction?

    4) Does Other controller by thermocouple has these feature?



thank you for reading despite my weak English skills.
