Practical thermocouples
The reasons for the popularity of thermocouples are not just the existence of a range of types designed to cover almost all temperature, environmental and accuracy requirements, or the fact that they are small. more

Thermocouple Styles
DIY is not everyone’s cup of tea; nor is it necessarily ideal for industrial usage, where large numbers are needed, and installation, commissioning, maintenance and replacement must be considered. more
Thermocouple Cables
It is often desirable to connect a thermocouple probe as part of a very long circuit from the sensor itself to a remote reference unit and/or measuring instrumentation. more
Thermocouple Connectors
Although the simplest of thermocouples and resistance thermometer detectors end in bare wires - as found in many laboratory and industrial/research applications more

Mineral Insulated Thermocouples
The most popular insulation and thermocouple protection style for industry today is the mineral insulated, metal sheathed type (MI or MIMS). These are comprised of a seamless metal sheath enclosing highly compacted mineral insulant powder more
Colour Coding and Specification
Main points to note include the following. Firstly, there is no colour differentiation between extension and compensating cable. The letter `X’ after the thermocouple Type indicates extension cable, while `C’ denotes that the cable is a compensating cable. more
Resistance Thermometer Detectors
To achieve high stability, platinum sensor elements must be, and remain, in a fully annealed condition and contamination free. Further, support and sheath materials and construction must be carefully selected and clean more
