Note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible or incompatible products.
The AM16/32-series and AM25T multiplexers are compatible with the 3WHB10K.
The 3WHB10K uses two adjacent single-ended analog inputs; an adjacent analog ground channel accepts the "ground prong" of the 3WHB10K. Not all datalogger terminal strips have this sequence on all channels, so please check your datalogger's wiring panel to confirm channel assignments, especially if you plan to use multiple terminal input modules.
Newer CR10X Wiring Panels can accommodate both the 3WHB10K and the cover associated with the CR10XTCR (reference thermistor for thermocouple measurements). Specifically, the physical configuration of the thermocouple cover, the datalogger input terminals, and the terminal input modules allow sufficient room for the cover to be used with a Terminal Input Module attached. In contrast, older CR10TCRs are not deep enough.

Yes. The 3WHB10K is required to measure three-wire temperature probes on the AM16/32B. As both RTDs and thermistors can be measured on the 3WHB10K, refer to the AM16/32B Relay Multiplexer Instruction Manual for the proper programming.
Yes. The CR1000 can measure eight PT100 sensors with a 3WHB10K terminal input module. The measurement instructions, however, have to reflect that more than one sensor is being excited with the same excitation channel (MeasPEx argument) in the BrHalf() or BrHalf3W() instruction.
The 4WPB100, 4WPB1K, and 4WHB10K terminal input modules can be used instead of the 3WHB10K module. However, to maintain the enhanced accuracy of the four-wire half-bridge instruction, it is pertinent when adding the fourth wire to maintain the same resistance as the other three wires (same wire size and manufacturer). Note that simply adding a short jumper wire on the 4WPB100, 4WPB1K, or 4WHB10K modules to complete the fourth wire will not maintain the accuracy.
