Thermocouple Extension Cables

Thermocouple sensors must be wired with right kind of materials between hot and cold junctions, in order to avoid measurement deviation caused by thermo voltages in connections of different materials. Cable types used are extension wires (X) or compensating cables (C).

SKS Automaatio’s stock items are silicon insulated compensating cables according to IEC 584, with maximum temperature +180 °C. The wire structure of one pair cables for J, K and S type TC sensors is 2 × 1,5 mm².
