Thermocouples transfer heat with the help of thermoelectricity into electrical energy. A thermocouple is a component consisting of two different metallic conductors connected together at one end. A temperature difference creates a heat flow and a thermoelectric voltage.
Temperature measurement with thermocouples
A temperature measuring device with a thermocouple as data indicator tends to consist of the thermocouple itself with a measuring tip, an extension cable, a cold junction with a specified constant temperature and a voltmeter.
As a longtime manufacturer of mineral-insulated thermocouples with more than 70 years of experience we are able to design a special thermocouple which can be produced especially for your application and according to your specifications. The type can be chosen freely depending on the application, e.g. type K, type J, type L, type S/T etc.
A selection of thermocouples with and without connecting cable and plugs can be found in the product overview below.
