MCP9600 K-Type Thermocouple

  • K-Type Thermocouple Temperature Converter
  • ±1.5°C (Max.) Hot-Junction Accuracy
  • Monitor Hot or Cold Junction Temperatures
  • Supports Eight Devices per I2C bus
  • Burst Mode: 1 to 128 Temperature Samples
  • Integrated Cold-Junction Compensation


The  MCP9600 is a fully integrated thermocouple  Electromotive Force (EMF) to degree Celsius converter, with integrated Cold-Junction compensation. This MCP9600 Mini Module offers a convenient I2C interface for cross-platform compatibility and a K-Type thermocouple connector, compatible with all K-Type thermocouples.  The MCP9600 provides user-programmable registers, adding design flexibility for various temperature sensing applications. The registers allow user-selectable settings, an adjustable digital filter for fast transient temperatures, and four individually programmable temperature alert outputs, which can be used to detect multiple temperature zones.

The MCP9600 includes one 5SRTC-TT-K-24-36 from K-Type thermocouple with a 44" 24 AWG connection cable, rated for temperature measurement applications up to 220°C (425°F) with ±1.5°C accuracy.  Up to 8 MCP9600 thermocouples may be chained together on a single I2C interface bus.


This is a general purpose I²C device compatible with all computing platforms and IoT technologies, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Particle, BridgeX5, and many more.  All devices support a strict +5V I²C Bus standard.

Mini Modules

Our mini modules provide a standardized footprint to simplify the design of your project, and allow for a smaller form factor without sacrificing the plug-and-play  ease of use that our product line affords.

All I²C Mini Modules are designed to operate at 5VDC. Using a convenient quick connect 4-Pin plug, devices can be daisy-chained onto the I²C Bus, eliminating the need for soldering. Simply plug together the devices you need for your next automation application.

Pull-up resistors are included with all master devices. If you are wiring in your own I²C port, on-board 4.7K jumper-selectable pull-up resistors are available for convenience purposes.

All mini modules are 50.8 x 31.75 mm.
