How to Make Temp-Time Data Acquisition Kits

Dear Folks,

I have a task to make, a data acquisition system. My ideal system would be a thermocouple connected to a data acquisition kits (can be either USB or PCI) which links to a PC.

My problem is... I don't know how to do it, how to calibrate the thing.

Could anyone help me figure out for this? A step-by-step description is going to be great here.

ciao, SC.

National Instruments do thermocouple readers, eg. cRIO-9211 which hooks into a USB interface USB-9162. Pico also do suitable data loggers
