MI Cable with Excellent Long Term Stability at High Temperatures. Continuous use up to 1150°C. Excellent Oxidation, Carburization and Chlorination Resistance. High Purity MgO (HP) Available. Low Drift Stable Output Performance. Class 1 or Class 2 IEC Tolerance Available. Available in Thermocouple Types K or N. Cut to Length or Long Continuous Lengths. More
Super OMEGACLAD™ XL sheathed mineral-insulated thermocouple wire (MI cable) can be used at high temperatures for prolonged periods with very little drift of the base metal thermocouple. The sheath material uses Nickel-Chrome based Super OMEGACLAD™ XL sheathing, which provides excellent oxidation resistance. The sheath can withstand long-term exposure to combustion gases or air at temperatures up to1150°C. Short-term exposures to higher temperatures are also possible.
Superior resistance to oxidation attack results from a tenacious and protective high temperature film that does not affect the stability of the thermocouple alloys. This film permits the sensor to be used at high temperatures for prolonged periods with improved accuracy over other available sheath materials. Super OMEGACLAD™ sheathing also provides excellent resistance to corrosion in high temperature chlorine-contaminated oxidizing environments and ammonia/nitride-rich environments at temperatures above 980°C, the temperature at which the protective film forms.

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.

Thermocouples are the most widely used temperature sensors on the planet due to their combination of wide temperature capabilities, ruggedness, and low cost. Thermocouples are used in applications that range from home appliances to industrial processes, to electric power generation, to furnace monitoring and control, to food and beverage processing, to automotive sensors, to aircraft engines, to rockets, satellites and spacecraft.
When it comes to high temperatures, small size, fast response, high vibration or shock, most times you will find thermocouples providing the temperature measurements.

Temperature measurement is possible through several means. We commonly use thermometers for measuring temperature. However, for precision measurements, where even a small spike in temperature requires to be recorded, we use advanced forms of measurement devices like thermocouples. Thermocouples are measurement devices that can read very slight temperature changes. Hence, they are widely used in applications where accuracy is of utmost importance.
However, like any measurement device, the efficiency of thermocouples will deteriorate overtime under constant use. At this point, the thermocouple needs recalibration.
