However following a discussion with Phidgets - they have recommended a VINT hub and some individual TMP 1100 isolated thermocouple boxes. Apparently these are a newer design and would provide a better solution.
While waiting for my Cormorant I'm using this Phidgets configuration to instrument my FreshRoast SR700 with 3 thermo probes. It works really well with Artisan and with 3 probes (heater, beans temp, exhaust temp) I'm able easily to get good roast where I struggled with other solutions allowing just one or two probes. TC4 is better only because you can use PID with it. And it's completely doesn't matter with a manual roaster like Cormorant.
BTW, I plan later to instrument mine with motors and sensors from Phidgets to make it full auto (or as close as possible), so VINT hub is an excellent choice as I have 5 more ports available for additional devices.
