LabJack T7

Frustrated with inconsistencies and poor documentation of the Raspberry Pi and Arduino  boards. Radical decision time! Searched the internet for a better solution, industrial grade, tested and with a real manual. Found LabJack T7 with the ability to measure thermocouples directly.
T7 HW Desc

The T7 family of devices has the resolution and amplification necessary to directly measure raw thermocouple signals.  If you save 1 channel for an external cold junction temperature sensor a single T7 can measure up to 13 thermocouples itself .

 

 

 

 

The power-meting with an ACS712 goes also directly. In the picture below it’s hooked up to AIN0 with a reading of 2.526106 whit no current flowing and 5V power-supply.

It comes with a extensive library with functions to integrate in different programming environments like Python C++ etc.

 

About Egidius Kuhlmann

Reading about peak-oil, overpopulation, “Terra Preta” and biochar in 2009 and after making batches biochar for soil improvement from garden residue, I thought, why not make biochar from corpses. Deeply worried about the unsustainable path 'we' as humanity have taken, I see a future where fossil fuels are scarce, the western economic growth model in tatters, the global temperature rises due to the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere with an growing population reaching billions more humans than is sustainable? Thinking along those paths, the question “how can we dispose so efficiently and with the least amount of energy of human remains” became the starting point.
