Thermocouple Type-K - Stainless Steel


The Sparkfun Stainless Steel Type-K Thermocouple probe is an efficient device that operates by connecting two wires of dissimilar metals at both ends, creating a temperature gradient between the two ends. This process results in a voltage potential, allowing current to flow. The probe is designed with one junction, known as the hot junction, held in the environment where the temperature of interest exists, while the other junction, referred to as the cold junction, is typically found in ICs that specialize in reading the temperatures detected by the thermocouple probe.

The Sparkfun Type-K Thermocouple probe is crafted from chromel and alumel, capable of withstanding a high temperature of 400°C and a low of 0°C. The probe itself measures 200mm in length and 5mm in diameter, making it compact and easy to install. It is terminated with a standard thermocouple connector for hassle-free connection.

It's important to note that the Sparkfun Type-K Thermocouple probe is not intended for food use.

The features of the Sparkfun Stainless Steel Type-K Thermocouple probe include:

  • Type-K Thermocouple
  • Standard Thermocouple Connector
  • Temperature Range: 0-400°C
  • Probe Diameter: 5mm
  • Probe Material & Length: Stainless Steel, 200mm

With the Sparkfun Type-K Thermocouple probe, monitoring temperature gradients in various environments becomes a seamless task. Its robust construction and high temperature tolerance make it a reliable choice for a wide range of applications. Whether it's for industrial, scientific, or hobbyist use, this thermocouple probe delivers accurate and consistent results, making it an essential tool in any temperature monitoring setup.
