MCP9600 Thermocouple Amplifier¶
mcp9600 sensor platform allows you to use your MCP9600 and MCP9601
Adafruit) to measure the temperature of a connected thermocouple while also measuring the ambient temperature around the sensor with ESPHome. I²C is
required to be set up in your configuration for this sensor to work.
The I²C bus must be set to a minimum of
100khz due to the limitations of the MCP9600 and MCP9601.
