Multipurpose Instrument correlates temperature, voltage.
July 31, 2009 -
With up to 48 configurable input channels, MEASURpoint(TM) lets users measure any combination of RTD, thermocouple, and voltage from 300 µV to 400 V. ISO-Channel(TM) technology makes measurements almost indestructible and eliminates any common mode noise and ground loop problems under all environmental conditions. Along with software-selectable voltage ranges on channel basis, features include parallel operation of 24-bit A/D resolution per channel.

Data Translation Announces MEASURpoint Ultra Accurate Instrument for Correlation of Temperature and Voltage Measurements
MARLBORO, MA - July 28, 2009 - Data Translation announces MEASURpoint(TM) a highly accurate, multipurpose single instrument solution for measuring any combination of RTD, thermocouple, and voltage ranges from 300µV to 400V.
"MEASURpoint is the first instrument of its kind that allows the user to simultaneously correlate temperature and voltage measurements." according to Fred Molinari, Founder and CEO of Data Translation. "A broad array of applications including Li-ion and fuel cell battery measurement, hybrid electric vehicle battery performance, thermal battery management, and portable equipment measurement are now simplified."
MEASURpoint incorporates proprietary ISO-Channel(TM) technology that makes measurements almost indestructible and eliminates any common mode noise and ground loop problems under all environmental conditions. In addition, up to forty-eight configurable input channels in groupings of eight voltage, thermocouple, and RTD inputs offer ultimate flexibility to the user.
Key Product Features
B,E,J,K,N,R,S, and T thermocouple types to 0.0004ºC resolution
Supports Platinum RTD Types: Pt100 (±0.07ºC accuracy), Pt500, Pt1000 (±0.01ºC accuracy)
Software selectable voltage ranges of ±10V, ±100V, or ±400V on a channel basis
Flexible software configuration on up to 48 input channels
