K Thermocouple Multiplexer Shield

K Thermocouple Multiplexer Shield


This item has been replaced by a newer version.

The K Thermocouple Multiplexer Shield is designed to allow multiple high temperature reading with an Arduino control board. The addition of an SD card shield can allow for temperature logging.

Screw terminals are provided for thermocouple connections as thermocouple wires can not be soldered.

Applications include;

  • Automotive: Engine, Exhaust and Brake temperature are higher than most temperature sensors can handle but within the range of a K-type Thermocouple.
  • Chemical Processes
  • Multi-Zone Temperature Monitoring
  • Data Acquisition Systems


  • Add up to 8 K-Type Thermocouples to an Arduino
  • Various Temperature Range: 0 to 128 °C or 0 to 1024 °C
  • 0.1” Pitch Screw Terminals for Thermocouple connection
  • ADG608 Multiplexer IC
  • 13 x 8 Prototyping Area with Analog and Power pins
  • Chip Select Pin Jumper Selectable means multi SPI shield compatibility
  • Combine with SD card shield for powerful Temperature Logging
  • Powered from 3.3V Arduino Pin, 5V compatible

Selection Guide:

  • KTA-259: 0 to 1024°C with MAX6675 IC
  • KTB-259: 0 to 128°C with MAX6674 IC

Note: We are now shipping this shield with stackable headers installed
