Thermocouple Sensors

Thermocouples (T/Cs) are a common temperature sensors used in industry. T/Cs are relatively rugged and can be used in a wide range of temperatures.

 

Thermocouples produce a DC voltage depending on the temperature of the T/C probe. The voltage is in the millivolt range and increases with increases in temperature. T/Cs are formed by joining two different metal alloy wires. There are several types of T/Cs. The most common are:

 

Thermocouple

RTD Infrared

Proximity Photoelectric

Fiberoptic

Level

HEATERS, SENSORS, CONTROLS
