    hi all;
    can any one tell me how many maximum number of thermo-couples we can connect in series to make thermopile?

    How many serial wired connections do you have time to make before your death of old age?
    THAT is your limit...

    You mean 41 is the wrong answer? I could swear that Sheldon said it was the answer to everything. Maybe he was misinformed.

    Actually, Sheldon said it was 42, the well known and often misunderstood universal constant which is the answer to the Ultimate question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. Personally, I like its elegance and compactness. Otherwise, we'd have to use imaginary numbers. Yuck!

    Close enough for engineering purposes.

    Careful, you are treading in thin ice with some members - accepting more than 2% error as common practice is just, well, ...
    ok, 2% is way better than I ever do. I would have settled for 40 to 50. I have a strong preference for round numbers.

    If my career was still in progress, I just might care.
