This pair of connctors can be used to extend the thermocouple cable length. It can be installed to the thermocouple extension cable for easy instal and removal.
For accurate temperature measurements, thermocouple cables can’t be connected with connectors made with copper contact, unless both ends of the copper have the same temperature and identical chemical purity. This can be difficult to achieve sometimes because the temperature inside the project box is different than the temperature outside. The contact pin in each side of a connector probably has different chemical compositions because there is no requirement for them to be identical for regular applications. Using connectors specially made for thermocouples will avoid this problem. The contacts of this pair of connectors are made of the same material as the K type thermocouples. Using it will not introduce error to the measurement. This is the best quality connector on the market. Both connector have cable clamp that helps to secure large diameter cables.
This product includes one male and one mating female (round shape) K type thermocouple connector.
