TSPAPP-THERMISTOR-V1.1.0
November 22, 2022
Thermistor app for models DAQ6510, DMM6500, DMM7510. This application script allows you to take automated resistance measurements on a thermistor and store corresponding temperature data.  Two resistance-temperature characterization models are available for use: the Beta model and the Steinhart-Hart model.  While the script is running, resistance measurements will be immediately converted to corresponding temperature values, which is useful for live monitoring.
The resistance measurements, temperature readings, and coefficient values (if needed) are stored in 3 separate data buffers.  Data buffers can be displayed in a table, on a graph, or exported to a USB.
For the latest version of this application and to see other applications, visit https://www.tek.com/keithley/tsp-applications-for-touch-test-invent-models.

Version 1.1.0 enhancements.
• Temperature readings are now displayed immediately on the app home screen. Previously the operator needed to navigate to the graph and view the temperature as a series trend. Now a region of the screen (lower left corner) provides the real time digital readout of the most recent temperature conversion.
