2 Channels On The Same Input With And Without Thermocouple Conversion

Recommended Posts


I am trying to display 2 different values from the same input in DF. Using 2 different channels, one of them has the built in 'Conversion: Thermocouple' selected and the other does not. I want to display the converted temperature reading and the raw voltage reading at the same time using the built in converter equation for the temp channel.

However, when this is implemented, the channel that does not have the conversion selected is automatically converted to the temperature value. Is there a way around this that would easily let me display both values without hard-coding the conversion equation.


-Using DF 5.91 with a Labjack U6-PRO and a type J Thermocouple.


In picture the 2 channels in question are RAWVOLTAGE and Temperature.

Assuming the Conversion was something like "Value * 10", change the Temperature channel, making it Device Type Test, with Timing = 0, then in the Event for RawVoltage put:


Temperature = RawVoltage[0] * 10
