Yes. A reference temperature is required for the 105E-L thermocouple measurement. The data logger wiring panel temperature is an appropriate reference temperature when the 105E-L is wired directly to the data logger. Additional considerations are necessary if the 105E-L is being measured on a multiplexer. For more information, refer to the “Thermocouple Measurement” section in the AM16/32B Relay Multiplexer Instruction Manual.
