K Type Themocouple Cable
A Type K thermocouple Cable refers to any temperature sensor containing Chromel and Alumel conductors, that meets the output requirements as stated in ANSI/ASTM E230 or IEC 60584 for Type K thermocouples.
Thermocouple wire allows temperatures to be measured electronically. A typical thermocouple construction consists of a pair of dissimilar metals that are electrically joined together at the sensing point and connected to a voltage measuring instrument at the other end. When one junction is hotter than the other, a thermal â€œelectromotiveâ€ force (in millivolts) is produced that is roughly proportional to the difference in temperature between the hot and cold junctions.
