Technical ResourcesThe ABC’s of thermocouple wire calibration types: What do they mean?When it comes to thermocouple wire, there’s a veritable alphabet of calibration typesavailable: K type thermocouple, J type thermocouple, T type and so on. We’re frequentlyasked: What do these designations mean and which type is right for a specific application?First, you have to understand what is meant by the phrase ‘calibration type’. This refersto the designation name (or type) that defines the unique chemical composition of thedissimilar metals of the positive and negative thermo element bare conductors used inthe thermocouple wire. Read More.What do the thermocouple wire color codes mean?Most countries developed their own thermocouple wire color codes years ago. Today,there are two governing bodies that are globally recognized for setting the accepted colorcodes standards: ASTM International (formerly known as American Society for Testingand Materials or ASTM) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ASTM E23003 is the standard adopted by the United States. The standard recognized in Europe is IEC584-3.

Even if you’reusing calibrated wire that has been tested in a calibration laboratory, they cannot andshould not be substituted one for another. The Electro Motive Force (EMF) output of eachthermocouple type is different and unique from all other types. You want to be sure thatyou’ve selected the right calibrated wire for the temperature range of your application.Read More.Quick Reference Guidewww.tewire.com888-4TE-WIRE (888-483-9473)Subscribe to Blog5

Technical ResourcesTop 3 Considerations when Selecting Type K Thermocouple WireThe TC wire market is not as big as copper or electrical wire, but it’s exciting to see howthis proven technology is still being implemented into next generation equipment. TCwire can be found in a diversity of applications – from scientific research in cryogenictemperatures to industrial applications in metallurgy – that require a high temperaturetolerance. TC wires are generally very accurate and have a wide range of operatingtemperatures. Type K is the high temperature thermocouple of choice among manycustomers throughout the world. Here are the top three selection factors to keep in mindwhen making your selection. Read More.How to Control Noise in Instrumentation Circuits (Part 1)4 Common Sources of Noise that Affect Instrumentation Circuits – It can be a realchallenge to select the right thermocouple wire. You not only have to determine the typeof thermocouple elements to use, but also the temperature range, calibration accuracyand insulation type for your application. With thousands of different configurations,it’s still far less complicated than thermocouple and instrumentation cable circuits.Regardless, it is important to know how to control noise in instrumentation circuits.Read More.How to Control “Noise” in Instrumentation Circuits (Part 2)Understanding Noise Levels and Installation Considerations – In part one, we discussedthe four types of noise frequently found in instrumentation circuits (i.e., Common Mode,Cross Talk, Static and Magnetic) as well as the methods used to correct the problemsthey cause. Next, we discuss the types of noise levels found in various environments andsome installation considerations that will help you mitigate or completely eliminate thenoise problems.
