    Perfect replacement

    Posted by Ben on 31st May 2021

    Bought two of these to replace a pair of older models after they were damaged. These were perfect drop in replacements for out oven cycle tracking.

    Quick Response and Support

    The sales support was fact to support my need. When I found out the item was not available, she search and offered a refurbished model which has pretty much the same warranty.

    Solid product and easy to use

    Posted by nkyengineer on 27th Sep 2020

    We have been using this in our R&D area for the past couple years. It's very easy to setup and use, which makes it nice for moving it around to different areas of our lab and setting it up to measure different tests. Would recommend for this type of application.

    I have been using 4 USB-TC units for a few years monitoring temperatures of various points on a jet engine generator and have had no problems.

    The product worked well for us

    Posted by JAM66 on 29th Sep 2019

    We had to do a lot of software filtering for our application. It would be awesome if they can incorporate a hardware filter.

    USB-TC great little device with awsome support

    Posted by Aretmio on 2nd Dec 2018

    We have developed a little .Net application to run solar panels and the USB-TC sends reliable data back via the USB interface. It works great, and we rarely have to reboot our system. The device itself doesn't overheat and it is easy to install. The software that comes with it is helpful to program/initialize. The only issue we have had with it is that on very powerful Kansas thunderstorms, we get some static that blow the device sensors, but I think this has to do a lot with the kind of connectors that were initially installed. Measurement Computing customer support is great and I can always get one of their techs live on the phone.
