What is a Thermocouple Connector?
A thermocouple connector is a device used to connect thermocouple wires to instrumentation or other equipment. It provides a secure and reliable connection, maintaining the integrity of the temperature measurement.
Thermocouple connectors typically have specific pins or terminals corresponding to different thermocouple wire types for proper connection and accurate temperature readings.
Thermocouple & RTD Connectors by Process Parameters
Our range of thermocouple connectors is perfect for connecting thermocouple probes to extension or compensating cables. Each connector has polarised pins to ensure correct connection and is rated for use up to 220°C, 350°C or 650°C.
The range consists of miniature and standard sizes and our connectors are available for use with all the common sensor types (Type K, J, T, N, R, S and E). Please get in touch as we can support your connector requirements whatever the design.
Miniature Thermocouple Connectors
Compact miniature thermocouple connectors with flat pins are perfectly suited for establishing connections between thermocouple sensors and extension or compensating cables. The pins have been designed with polarity in mind, preventing any incorrect connections. The connector body is clearly marked for proper polarity alignment. These connectors are capable of handling temperatures up to 220°C, 350°C, or 650°C.
Standard Thermocouple Connectors
These standard thermocouple connectors with round pins are well-suited for linking thermocouple sensors and extension or compensating cables together. The pins are designed with polarity in mind to prevent incorrect connections, and the connector body is also clearly marked for proper polarity alignment. These connectors are capable of withstanding temperatures up to 220°C, 350°C, or 650°C.
FAQs About Thermocouple Plugs & Sockets
Do thermocouples need special connectors?
Yes, thermocouples require special connectors. These connectors ensure accurate and reliable temperature measurements by maintaining proper polarity and preventing incorrect connections, crucial for precise data collection.
How do you connect a thermocouple to a connector?
To connect a thermocouple to a connector, insert the thermocouple wires into the corresponding terminal slots of the connector, ensuring proper polarity alignment, and secure them using screw or clamp mechanisms.
What are the two types of thermocouple connectors?
The two types of thermocouple connectors are standard connectors, with round pins, and mini connectors, with flat pins. Both ensure accurate temperature measurements and proper polarity.
