The measurement of temperature on small structures requires probes of correspondingly small dimensions. With the Thermocouple Amplifier Module (TCAM) and a suitable thermocouple, there are virtually no limitations.

Thermocouple probes (Type T, copper constantan) are available in a wide range of forms. From the thinnest wires with a diameter of 0.23 mm (IT-23) to the largest rectal probe with 4 mm probe diameter (RET-1); a whole range of probes in different forms and dimensions can be supplied. The temperature probes are directly interchangeable and do not require individual calibration.

The range of the TCAM module covers 0°C to 100°C. In the physiological temperature range (30 to 45°C) the basic accuracy is 0.1°C; outside this range the accuracy is 0.2°C.The built-in digital display has a resolution of 0.1°C.

The TCAM module has an analogue output for connection to a recorder or data acquisition system. The recorder or acquisition system can easily be calibrated through a build-in simulation device with two adjustable temperature values. In addition, there is a zero suppression facility for recorders which permits recording temperatures within a limited range (e.g., 36 to 38°C) at a high resolution.
