ADSread works by reading the ADC result and proceeds to start a new conversion. The function uses the writeSPI library to communicate. if the mode is set to 1, the configuration is set to convert the voltage of the thermocouple. Otherwise, when mode is set to 0, the ADS is in temperature sensor mode where it converts the voltage of the integrated temperature sensor.
ADS.ADSread(value, 0); //sets to mode 0
ADS.ADSread(value, 1); //sets to mode 1
mode - an int that should pass either a '0' or a '1'
result of the last conversion
