Thermocouple Sensor - Industrial strength temperature sensor

Thermocouple Sensor

Industrial strength temperature sensor

The AKCess Pro thermocouple is perfect for use in heavy industries, such as petrochemical and metal processing.

  • Product Code: TCXX
  • Powered by the base unit
  • J-K Thermocouple Adapters available

The AKCess Pro thermocouple is perfect for use in heavy industries, such as petrochemical and metal processing. With an ability to measure from -200ºC (-328ºF) up to 800ºC (1472ºF) it is also suited to those low temperatures found in cryogenics and medical applications.

  • Available in both J and K type thermocouple
  • For use with the J or K type thermocouple adapter
  • Works with securityProbe series only
  • Wide temperature range for use in a variety of industrial applications
  • Powered by securityProbe, no additional power necessary

K type thermocouple

The K type thermocouple is the most commonly found and used thermocouple type. The tip is made from a +ve electrode of chromel and a -ve electrode of alumel metal. It is less sensitive than the J type thermocouple but has a wider temperature range.

  • 200ºC to +900ºC

J type thermocouple

The J type thermocouple has a +ve electrode of Iron and a -ve electrode of constantan metal (a copper-nickle alloy). It has a lower range than the J type thermocouple but a higher sensitivity.

  • 200ºC to +750ºC

 

With the securityProbes autosense function the sensor is automatically detected and configured when plugged in. Setup is quick and easy, with the user only needing to setup the thresholds required for high and low warning/critical levels and any notifications required. This is simply done using securityProbes web based interface. No calibration is required.
