NEW PRODUCT – Thermocouple Type-K Glass Braid Insulated – K. Thermocouples are best used for measuring temperatures that can go above 100 degC. This is a bare wires bead-probe which can measure air or surface temperatures. Most inexpensive thermocouples have a vinyl covering which can melt at around 200 degC, this one uses a fiberglass braid so it can be used in high temperature measurements such as heaters and ovens.
- K type thermocouple with glass over-braiding
- Good up to 500 degrees C (900 DegF)!
- Color-coded wires
- 1 meter long (a little more than 3 feet)
Best used with a thermocouple amplifier such as the MAX6675 (pictured above, not included). We have a handy tutorial which covers thermocouple use including an Arduino library and example code!
