Options for Type K Thermocouple

Type Detail Code
Solder coat Tip easy to joint with solder

There is no perfect flux for K type thermocouple. So please use this solder coated thermocouple and high melt solder cored wire together(1000yen).

Connector Heat resistance: -28℃ ~ +218℃ (C)male
(C)female
High temp. Connector Heat resistance: -28℃ ~ +650℃ (HC)male
(HC)female
Pressure connection terminal this connector is Y shape. (Y)
insulation (Polyimide) on bare wire and thermocouple tip Can be used to measure the surface temperature where a low voltage may be present, however problems may occur at voltages approaching 300V The insulated wire and tip can also protect the thermocouple in a corrosive liquid / environment. (P)
insulation on bare wire only For applications where the bare wire could cause a short circuit, for example, if you are attaching the thermocouple tip with solder, we would recommend this option. (EP)
capton (polyimide) tape Reinforcement Reinforcing of connection between original wire and fine wire
fine thermocouple capton tape reinforcement
(R)
NEW PATENTED one side black body This new patented design for Sheet Thermocouples will absorb Infra Red energy giving faster response times and greater accuracy.
(B)
Both side black body) for Sheet Thermocouple) (BB)
bare wire length Usually 10mm,  it is possible to manufacture according to your specific request between 5mm-23mm. However, it should be noted that a 13 micron wire will have a maximum length of 15 mm (bare length mm)
packing sheet The thermocouples are usually dispatched in cardboard to reduce any static build up, we can also offer acrylic resin sheet free of charge, for clean room applications. Please specify this when ordering. (acrylic sheet)


Option of Capton tape and high melt solder wire:

Material Specification
Capton tape
width:12mm, length: 50cm
(Please specify thickness,
70μm or 25μm)
Heat resistance of 70μm thickness: Continuous usage: -73℃to +260℃; overheating use limit: 370℃

Heat resistance of 25μm thickness: 200℃max.
High melt solder
cored wire dia.:1.2mm
length: 3.4m
Pb90% Sn8% Ag2%; Melt. Point: 295℃
Remark:EU RoHS doesn't restricted high melt solder more than 85% Pb because there is no alternative.

There is no perfect flux for K type thermocouple. So please use our solder coated thermocouple and this high melt solder cored wire together.
*Options may be changed without preliminary announcement.

How to choose your thermocouple
Tip shape Fine thermocouple The Fine Thermocouple tip is ideally suitable for temperature measurement of very small components, with a fast response time and high accuracy. The tip can be fixed using an Ag past, and is therefore recommended as an OEM product not as a reusable Thermocouple. Standard tip dia. is 25 micron. You can choose tip dia. with 13 micron or 50 micron for special applications.
Sheet thermocouple

The Sheet Thermocouple is designed to measure surface temperature, and it can offer high strength, high accuracy and fast response time. We would recommend using one side black body, and capton tape to secure the thermocouple as this will absorb the Infra-red energy.

Fine and Sheet thermocouple A mixture of Fine Thermocouple and Sheet Thermocouple, which 25micron dia. is made 10 micron thick, and 50micron dia. 20 micron thick.
Suitable for surface temperature measurement of very small components, with fast response and high accuracy. Recommended for applications such as silicon wafer.
Multi purpose thermocouple

Available with 100, 200 and 320 micron wire, this thermocouple does not have tip ball shape as conventional thermocouples. Its simple tip shape gives a faster response time and greater accuracy.  This is a very robust thermocouple, recommended for applications were the temperature is not changing rapidly, the thermocouple tip can be fixed using solder or ceramic bonding into the substrate being measured.

Insulation Glass

Glass insulation will operate at a constant temperature not exceeding 250 ℃. Temperatures up to 300℃ would be acceptable only for short periods of time. Glass insulation is very flexible, however, it may not be suitable flor clean room applications.

Teflon Maximum operating temperature for Teflon is 200℃   we would recommend Teflon insulation for measuring the temperature of liquids, chemicals and any application where it would be open to the outdoor elements.
Ceramic

Suitable for applications where high temperatures are likely, for example ovens, furnaces, rocket / jet engine exhaust ports etc.  However this material would not be suitable for any applications involving water, as the ceramic bond will dissolve in water.

Shielded Insulated wire 200micron 200 micron wire would be used for mechanical strength is a concern and would be recommended for any application where the cable would be longer than 2 meters, to minimise interference by external electromagnetic wave.
Options Solder coat Tip This type of thermocouple is easy to attach in applications where a solder joint is possible.
one side black body Sheet thermocouples can be attached to the substrate by capton tape, we recommend our one sided black body thermocouple, fitted with capton tape, the black body can absorb the infra red energy resulting in a faster response time.
Connector For easy connection to data logger or monitoring equipment.
Insulation on bare wire & tip

Can be used to measure the surface temperature where a low voltage may be present. The insulated wire and tip can also protect the thermocouple in a corrosive liquid / environment. The insulated wire will ensure that you are measuring the temperature at the tip and not along the wire length. The operating temperature for the insulation is 300 degrees celsius, the insulation is applied in three coats to prevent pin holes, however, this will increase the diameter as follows.  200micron will increase to 210 micron 25 micron to 28 micron and 50 micron increases to 56 micron.

Insulation on bare wire only (not on tip) For applications where the bare wire could cause a short circuit, for example, if you are attaching the thermocouple tip with solder, we would recommend this option.
Capton (polyimide) tape reinforcement Reinforce connection between original wire and fine wire.
Bare wire length Usually 10mm, however it is possible to manufacture to your specific request between 5mm & 23mm without charge. But please take care, the longer the wire the more difficult it is to use.
Packing sheet The thermocouples are usually dispatched in cardboard to reduce any static build up, we can also offer acrylic resin sheet free of charge, for clean room applications. Please specify this when ordering.
