Thermocouples are precise temperature measuring elements made of the highest grade materials available. They are carefully assembled according to the highest standards set by the industry. OMEGA’s thermocouples are checked against standard temperature-millivolt curves to assure calibration accuracy and must match accepted performance curves which set the standard ANSI accuracy limits.

A thermocouple is a sensor for measuring temperature. This sensor consists of two dissimilar metal wires, joined at one end, and connected to a thermocouple thermometer or other thermocouple-capable device at the other end. When properly configured, thermocouples can provide temperature measurements over wide range of temperatures.
Thermocouples are known for their versatility as temperature sensors therefore commonly used on a wide range of applications...
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 and thermistors), infrared radiators, bimetallic devices, liquid expansion devices, and change-of-state devices.
