What is Thermocouple Connectors?
Thermocouple connectors are used to transmit temperature readings from a thermocouple. These specialized connectors are designed to extend the thermocouple wire and must be rated for a particular thermocouple. Lettered choices for thermocouple types include B, C, E, J, K, N, R, S, T, and W. For each type or thermocouple, the appropriate connector is attached to the thermocouple terminals. The connector ground protects against errors caused by electrical noise. With some products, an external group strap maintains the electrical connection of the ground wire and strengthens the mechanical link between the connectors. Wireless thermocouple connectors are also available. Both wired and wireless devices transmit temperature and/or voltage values to a host computer or meter.
There are 2 type of size of Thermocouple Connectors:
Miniature Thermocouple Connectors
Standard Thermocouple Connectors
Thermocouple connectors can be of : Two Pins, Three Pins, Four Pins, or more than four pins.
