Thermocouple sensor

Suitable for a wide range of use (high temperatures)

The thermocouple probe is characterized by a fast response time and is perfectly suited for high or very high temperature operation.

The temperature sensor is often delivered with a connection head (see photo opposite).

What is the advantage of a thermocouple over a resistance thermometer?

The choice of probe type depends on your application. The thermocouple has a faster response time than the resistance thermometer and is designed to measure high or very high temperatures up to 1600 ° C. See here our comparison chart.
