Hello gents. I am trying to connect my adafruit 8495 thermocouple amplifier to my aux port. I have the head temp sensor connected to the 8495 but I am unclear on where I can gather 5V from to power it. Is there a port on the dyno box I can use? I have searched for a few days with no clear answers. I dont want to try something and end up hurting the dyno module. Can any one clear up the wiring for this thermocouple for me?

Currently my thermocouple port on the dyno module is reading my EGT sensor. 2 of the aux ports will run my head temp probes. I appreciate any help.

Hi, you can take 5V from one of the load cell connectors.

Thank you. After multiple tests I was able to find that I wasn't getting a reading due to a faulty temp probe. I am now seeing the data. Thanks for the help.
