    Hi there,

    I have wired up a type t thermocouple to an LTK001 (amplifier/compensator) using the diagram given on the data sheet shown to give 10mv/deg C.
    Since this runs from a +5v / -5v supply i then step down this voltage from 10v pp to 3.3v using a level shift which has a reference voltage of 1.65 volts ( level shift circuit -

    So my circuit is wired ... thermocouple --> compensator --> amplifier --> level shifter.

    Now, I have tested all these parts alone (minus the compensator) and I get the correct voltages but when I connect together I do not, so confused.

    Any ideas ?

    Idea: You made a mistake in assembling the parts.
    We can't see your wiring from here, so it would be good to send us a schematic and some photos.
