Looking for a way to get up and running quickly with an RTD and temp monitor model 218. I'm looking to measure the temperature of a bulk superconductor within a cryostat and cooled down past Tc with a cryocooler. I was planning on performing a bench experiment with a platinum RTD (PT-102-AL) first and then move to the actual experiment with a Cernox RTD. Unsure how to setup the equipment and hookup sensor.
I have experience with shock and vibration instrumentation such as accelerometers, load cells, and VXI based data acquisition systems but have no experience using temperature measurement besides just basic thermocouple theory. Any links to tutorials on how to setup the instrumentation would be greatly appreciated.
