The M1029A TEMP Module is a temperature measurement parameter unit. It is designed to be used with adult, pediatric, or neonatal patients in an ICU or OR environment.
The TEMP Module produces numerics in degrees Celsius for the temperature.
Different labels can be selected for temperature readings from different measurement sites.
The following components carry out the major signal processing functions within the module:
- Reference Switching Matrix: Calibrates the measurement using reference resistors.
- Differential Amplifier: Amplifies the signals from the reference switching matrix.
- Dual-Slope, Analog-to-Digital Converter: Digitizes the analog signals from the temperature and thermistor calibration.
