La sonda TCAV suele utilizarse para obtener la temperatura promedio del suelo en los primeros 6 a 8 cm, en sistemas de medida del balance de energía y en sistemas Bowen-ratio. Formado por dos pares de termopares, conecta en paralelo sus salidas a una sola. Cada uno de los pares de termopares puede enterrarse a diferente profundidad. Los dos pares pueden estar separados hasta una distancia de 1 m.Leer más
The TCAV uses type E thermocouples, which are comprised of a chromel wire and a constantan wire joined at a measurement junction. A voltage potential is generated when the measurement end of the thermocouple is at a different temperature than the reference end of the thermocouple. The magnitude of the voltage potential is related to the temperature difference. Therefore, temperature can be determined by measuring the differences in potential created at the junction of the two wires.
A reference temperature measurement is required for thermocouple measurements. The temperature sensor built into many of our dataloggers' wiring panel typically provides this measurement.

Yes, as long as the TCAV-L is measured using a differential measurement instruction. Be sure to connect the shield wire to analog ground.
The TCAV-L measurement range, accuracy, and resolution are a function of the datalogger used to measure the TCAV-L. Refer to the appropriate datalogger manual measurement section for more information.
The TCAV-L is constructed using a Type E thermocouple wire. The high-order NIST polynomials were fit over the temperature range of -270° to 1000°C. The temperature range of a TCAV-L on a data logger depends on the measurement range selected in the thermocouple measurement instruction. For example, using a CR3000 and the ±20 mV input range and a reference temperature at 20°C, the TCAV-L temperature range is -270° to 300°C. Refer to the measurement section in the appropriate data logger manual for a detailed discussion on thermocouple measurements.
The TCAV-L is a Type E thermocouple. Use a Type E (chromel –constantan) Thermocouple found in the Sensor | Temperature group.
