This is a library that allows you manage a thermocouple attached to the MKR THERM Shield with a type k connector or with screw terminals. This library manages the MAX31855 chip of the shield.

The functions available are just two and allow to read the temperature of the hot junction - the tip of the thermocouple that is where you usually measure the temperature - and also the reference temperature at the cold junction - the connection between the wire of the thermocouple and the connector or the screw terminal. This reference value is used to give a compensated reading of the current measured at the hot junction. This current is then converted into a temperature.

To use this library
#include <Arduino_MKRTHERM.h>
