Thermocouple Support

Hi guys,

I would like to know what is the best supported thermocouple that I can use with Cayenne. I need to measure temperatures from 100F-900F.

Adafruit sell these Thermocouple Type-K Glass Braid Insulated [K] : ID 270 : $9.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits but I didn’t see them supported in the sensor list. How complicated would it be to add an unlisted sensor like this?


its possible with cayenne. have a look at this Overview | MAX31855 Thermocouple | Adafruit Learning System
once connected to arduino you can send the value to cayenne.

Thermocouple works fine with Cayenne, pay attention that beside K probe you need also SPI module to be able to connect the probe to ESP device.

Thanks for the feedback.
