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 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 miniature thermocouple plug connector can then be plugged into a mating miniature thermocouple socket connector.

Features and Benefits

• Pins made from true thermocouple alloys or compensating material for accurate signal transmission
• IEC colour coding for quick and easy identification
• Polarised flat pin contacts for an accurate connection
• Made from rugged glass-filled thermoplastic
• Able to withstand a high temperature of 220°C
• For use with stranded or solid wires
• Accepts thermocouple cable up to 4mm in diameter
• Simple captive screw clamp connection for quick assembly
• Polarity and thermocouple type clearly marked on housings

Applications

These miniature plugs are used in any application where thermocouples are installed, extended or replaced. Their robust construction makes these miniature thermocouple connectors ideal for use even in the most demanding temperature measurement applications.

Miniature In-Line Thermocouple Plug

This RS Pro miniature thermocouple plug is for use with Type K thermocouples, and can be used to connect to probes, extension cable assemblies and sockets. This in-line connector is of rugged construction and is ideal for demanding temperature measurement applications.

The simple screw-together construction of the plug allows it to be easily and securely terminated to either a cable or crimp-on probe insert. An attachable cable clamp is also available to further secure the connection and prevent strain on the wire.

The plug is also colour coded for ease of identification, and has polarized contacts to ensure correct connection.

Applications

K Type thermocouples typically measure a wide range of temperatures and are used in many digital thermometers. This robust connector is ideal for when reliability and durability are essential.
