3-Prong Standard Size Connector for Thermocouple, RTD and Thermistor
3 Prong / Pin Standard Design. Thermocouple Color Coded ANSI or IEC. White Uncompensated Available. Glass Filled Nylon Rated to 180°C (356°F). Allows Connection of a Shield with Thermocouple Sensors. U Version for 3 Wire RTD. Plug & Socket Version Available. More
The OTP 3-prong is standard sized with round pins and is available color-coded for thermocouple or white for uncompensated 3 wire and 3 pin TC connectors. These quick disconnect plugs and jacks provide reliable connections between thermocouple, RTD or thermistors (type U) and extension wires. The color-coded bodies are molded of high performance glass-reinforced nylon. Tubular plug prongs and collet-type jack inserts have low mass and reduce temperature gradients. Negative prongs and inserts are larger than positives to insure proper polarity upon connection. This is a standard feature on all connectors. Recommended for most applications requiring three-wire circuits, including shielded thermocouples, thermistors, and RTD's. Especially useful for continuing thermocouple shield leads through panel jacks. High-impact construction.
Standard supply is ANSI version, if you want to order IEC version, please state this in the note.

How is Temperature Measured?
Temperature can be measured via a diverse array of sensors. All of them infer temperature by sensing some change in a physical characteristic. Six types with which the engineer is likely to come into contact are: thermocouples, resistive temperature devices (RTDs Pt100 and thermistors), infrared radiators, bimetallic devices, liquid expansion devices, and change-of-state devices.
