HEASTERN Industries has announced a range of temperature thermocouple connectors in standard and miniature sizes. Both are available in high temperature (650ºC) ceramic constructions, fibre-glass filled polyester (380ºC), or ABS plastic to 160ºC continuous operation.
The use of thermocouple connectors of an appropriate alloy material eliminates any measurement error due to interconnection mismatches or uncompensated cold-junctions.
All connectors are either ANSI MC96.1 or IEC 584 colour coded. The connectors are available in standard and miniature sizes in panel mounting or in-line styles. Polarised connector pins guarantee correct electrical and polarity fits.
They are compatible with all other makes of equivalent thermocouple connectors and are available in duplex styles and special colours. PCB mount miniature thermocouple sockets are also available. These are designed for direct mounting onto printed circuit boards used in temperature instruments.
Multi-way panels and accessories such as cable clamps, relief washers and grommets, compression tube adaptors, and braze-on adaptors are all standard across the range.
