These semi rigid thermocouple sensors are ideal for many applications from simple temperature measurement to the more robust of environments and are available with various sheath materials. The thermocouple junction is located at the tip and is generally insulated from the sheath to eliminate earth loops. The metal sheaths are impervious to liquids and gases and can withstand high pressure, high vacuum, high vibration and harsh environments in general. Smaller diameter sensors respond to temperature changes more rapidly than larger diameters where as larger diameter sensors are mechanically stronger and have a longer operational life when used at high temperatures. The diameters range between 0.5mm up to 6.0mm and can be formed to shape particular applications without impairing performance. The typical bending radius is 10 x probe diameter but can be reduced to 4 x if required. The stainless steel Threaded M8 pot is crimped and resin sealed to prevent ingress of moisture and additionally allows for various cable styles to be utilised. The threaded pot enables the sensor to be secured onto fixtures or bulkheads utilising lock nuts available as an accessory. The sensor is supplied with 100mm long PFA insulated twisted flying tails constructed of 7/0.2mm conductor strands however other alternatives are available.
A range of accessories including extension cables, connectors, pockets, thermowells and adjustable compression fittings are available for this product.
