A thermocouple consists of two dissimilar metals or alloys joined together where a small voltage is produced. As the temperature at this junction increases the voltage increases. Electronic instruments sense the voltage and convert it to temperature.
Thermocouple extension grade wire is recommended for use in connecting thermocouples to the instrument. LEONI ICON thermocouple extension cables are suitable for applications requiring precise temperature measurement for control and process applications.
Thermocouple extension grade cables are available to ANSI, IEC and other international color codes, and are available in UL and EN design.
