AutomationDirect’s ProSense line of process measurement devices now includes type J and type K thermocouples, more varieties of RTD sensors and extension wire.
Thermocouple probes with connection heads feature cast aluminum NEMA 4 screw covers with captive gasket and stainless steel chain. The ¼-inch probes are available with temperature sensing ranges of 32 to 1,330° F (Type J) or 32 to 1,700° F (Type K). Welded-style probes in six-, 12- and 18-inch lengths are bendable; spring-loaded probes are available in four-, six- or 12-inch lengths.
Thermocouple welded and spring-loaded probes with hex nipples allow for replacement of existing probes and connection to wiring junction boxes. Available in six-, 12- and 18-inch lengths, the ¼-inch welded style is bendable to adapt to installation requirements, while the spring-loaded style provides positive tip contact in thermowells.
Available thermocouple probes with pre-attached plugs feature 1/8- or 1/4-inch sheaths in six-, 12- and 18-inch lengths; thermocouple probes with lead wire transition come with a six-foot lead wire. Temperature sensing ranges are 32 to 970° F or 32 to 1330° F (Type J) and 32 to 1700° F (Type K).
Type J or K thermocouple adjustable immersion sensors feature a 32 to 900° F temperature range and four-, six-, or 10-foot lead wires; the spring and armor adjustable styles allow for variable immersion depths.
RTD probes feature ¼-inch stainless steel sheaths with 100 ohm platinum three-wire elements. With a temperature sensing range of -58 to 572° F, the probes are available in six-, 12- and 18-inch lengths. Models available include welded and spring-loaded probes with cast aluminum NEMA 4 connection head and captive gasket, ¾-inch NPT conduit opening and stainless steel cover chain; probes with hex nipples are available in welded and spring-loaded styles. Also available are probes with pre-attached three-pin plugs for wiring connection, as well as probes with lead wire transition or M12 connections. RTD thermowells are available for use with certain probes.
Two-conductor thermocouple extension wire for types J and K, in standard ASTM/ANSI colors, are available in 50-foot and 100-foot lengths. Also available is RTD extension wire. The three-conductor wire is available in 50-foot and 100-foot lengths.
