Can you show some kind of this resistance?

    True, about melting thermocouples, but if that happens and it was a
    K thermocouple was mounted between the liner and motor case, the
    game was over long ago! Then use Pt resistance "thermocouples" if
    more than 1350 C is needed.


    btw multiple thermocouples don't need to be insulated from each
    other or the case at the junction.  Strange but true.  I brazed, TIG
    welded, and clamped three K thermouples on a sheet of steel, put it
    in the oven and the temperatures tracked appropriately.  That makes
    it easier to measure a liner at different places.

      Thermocouples are cheap and work
        well, but if they are embedded in a sample that gets torched,
        they will at best record the surface temperature of the sample
        at the brief moment they are at the surface. It may work - and
        even provide usefull data - but an IR thermometer will read the
        surface temperature continuously.

            Here is another ebay seller with all thermocouple options,
            packaging variations, temperature compensated junctions, and
            EMI filtering, etc.  Looks to be professional grade

              A type K thermocouple is good to 1250 C.  It will need a
              simple instrumentation amplifier to get the signal voltage
              to a range compatible with the Arduino A/D converter.  For
              about $10 in parts you can build your own IN-AMP.  There
              are several choices for single chip IN-AMPs that will do
              the job and here is a board from China for $10, and the
              chip output is 10mv/deg C.

                                  for your reply Markus,

                                  is a good idea. The main problem I see
                                  is that we need to measure high
                                  temperatures. I do not know exactly
                                  how much, but around 1200ÂșC. And this
                                  only measures halfway. Do you know if
                                  there is a sensor for arduino with
                                  this possibility?

                                      Hi Vicente,
                                      It is quite easy to build a data
                                      logger with an Arduino based micro
                                      controller, SD card, SD card
                                      socket, HEF 4050 voltage level
                                      shifter, DS1307 RTC and one (or
                                      more) MLX90614 IR thermometer(s)
                                      which communicate(s) over the I2C
                                      bus as well.

                                          Hi all again,
                                          Although a long
                                            time do not talk about it,
                                            yet we continue the
                                            investigation of ablative
                                          For the study of
                                            the material that will coat
                                            the nosecone of our rocket;
                                            Richard, Mattias and I
                                            already started last summer
                                            to work on it.
                                          Throughout this
                                            week, I've been talking to
                                            Hans, and he thought the
                                            possibility to also measure
                                            the temperature on the side
                                            of the wall that is in
                                            contact with the flame.
                                            Would be measured by an
                                            infrared thermometer.
                                          I am contacting
                                            you to see if anyone is
                                            interested, or know how, to
                                            attach an infrared
                                            thermometer with data logger
                                            that Liam is manufacturing
                                            for thermocouples.
                                          By this, we can
                                            obtain pairs of temperatures
                                            at the same point. Both
                                            outside and inside of the
                                            wall, in order to obtain
                                            among other data, values of
                                            thermal conductivity and
                                            heat capacity of each
                                          Thanks in
                                            advance for your cooperation
                                            and interest.
