Thermocouples

As the ProSolarTec continues to improve its solar concentrating technology, the technologies used to measure and record data must also follow suit. Prometheus field tests currently use data acquisition software coupled with high-grade thermocouples to accurately measure temperatures of up to 8 different locations simultaneously. The testing has recently surpassed the upper limit of K-type thermocouples and in order to record these higher temperatures the Prometheus Team is now using platinum based R-type thermocouples. As the accuracy of the tests improves, more detailed fine-tuning can be executed on the prototypes, further increasing the success of the project's experiments.
