MoTeC RaceGrade TC8 (Thermocouple to CAN Module)
MoTeC RaceGrade TC8 (Thermocouple to CAN Module)

Vendor: MoTeC


The RaceGrade TC8 is a CAN based device that reads and allows up to 8 thermocouple temperature sensors to be connected. Typically, the RG TC8 is used for exhaust gas temperature measurement (EGT) and only works with non-amplified K-type thermocouples. Version 1.4 of TC8 is capable of being programed via CAN. This is useful if you wish to have multiple TC8s on one CAN bus, or are using a TC8 with a non Motec product. There are six different modes to choose from: The first four modes (0-3) mimic an E888, and modes four and five let you choose what CAN ID the messages are sent out on.
