Polarised contacts
Operating temperature +425 °C max. (Intermittent 540 °C max.)

What is a Thermocouple Connector?

Thermocouple connectors are an accurate and convenient way of interconnecting your temperature sensing components. Using these connectors allows a chain to be formed from the measuring tip of your temperature sensor to the host computer or meter. It is important that all the components in the chain are made from the same thermocouple material to prevent any alteration or distortion of the original signal. To achieve this, thermocouple connectors have pins or sockets made from the same material as the thermocouple they are being used to connect or a compensating material. The connector housing has the thermocouple type clearly printed on it and is also colour coded to allow easy identification. The connector is opened up and the thermocouple wires are simply screwed down into place using two captive screw clamps. The thermocouple plug connector can then be plugged into a thermocouple socket connector.

Features and Benefits

• Contacts made from true thermocouple alloys or compensating material for accurate signal transmission
High strength, heavy duty thermoset plastic housing
Can withstand temperatures of up to 425°C.
• Brown colour code for quick and easy identification
• Solid round polarised round pin contacts for an accurate connection
• For use with stranded or solid wires
• Simple captive screw clamp connection for quick assembly
• Polarity and thermocouple type clearly marked on the housing


These standard connectors are used in industrial applications where thermocouples are installed, extended or replaced. Their robust construction and ability to withstand very high temperature ranges make these thermocouple connectors ideal for use even in the most demanding temperature measurement applications.
