What is a Thermocouple?
A Thermocouple is a sensor that measures temperature. It consists of two different types of metals, joined together at one end. When the junction of the two metals is heated or cooled, a voltage is created that can be correlated back to the temperature.
Thermocouples are available in different models for different industries like plastic, pharmaceutical, food, marine, semi-conductors, aerospace, furnace and other applications. The most common calibrations are K, J, T and E. Type R & S are common for high temperature calibrations usage. This thermocouple can be constructed for hazardous locations and other application that requires varies of connection heads, protection tubes, thermo-wells and/or transmitters.
