Thermocouple Sensors

A thermocouple sensor consists of two dissimilar metals, joined together at one end. This junction is where the temperature is measured. A small voltage is produced by the two metals, which can be measured and interpreted by a control system. The dissimilar metals are individually insulated, and an overcoat is present to maintain an intimate bifilar configuration. TE Connectivity (TE) thermocouple sensors and assemblies are offered in a variety of standard styles to fit a wide range of applications. Class 1 thermocouples are built according to IEC584. Custom thermocouple solutions are available. TE offers decades of experience designing and manufacturing custom sensing solutions.
