THERMOCOUPLE GRADE WIRE - Solid or Stranded Alloy Wire

Thermocouple Grade Wire is a pair of wires of dissimilar alloys having emf-temperature characteristics calibrated to higher temperature levels than the extension type of thermocouple wire. Unlike the thermocouple extension wire, this wire may be employed as the thermocouple hot junction in addition to serving as the entire wire connection between hot and cold reference junctions. This wire is available in a wide range of insulating and jacketing materials to suit the most demanding environmental conditions.

    THERMOCOUPLE EXTENSION WIRE - Solid or Stranded Alloy Wire

    Use extension wire to conncect your thermcouple elements to your measurement and automation systems in less harsh enviroments. It is important to match your extension wire type to your thermocouple element type, otherwise errors can be introduced into your system. Thermocouple extension wire is available in a wide range of insulating and jacketing material to suit the most demanding environmental conditions.
