The thermocouple-based air sensor consists of a PTFE-insulated thermal wire type K (NiCr-Ni) and a miniature connector type K. Despite its simple design, the air sensor impresses with its very fast response time, as the measuring tip is exposed. The temperature sensor can also score points in terms of measuring precision, as B + B only uses pure thermocouple material in the manufacture of thermocouple sensors.
This type K temperature sensor is suitable for measuring temperatures of up to 260 ° C in a wide variety of media. Thanks to the miniature connector process connection, the air temperature sensor is often connected to handheld measuring devices (SHOP 0560 0305), all the more mobile in e.g. Processes to check and monitor the temperature.
Typical areas of application:
Measuring ovens, soldering ovens
Test bench measurement technology
Checking process temperatures
Surface measurement (thermocouple can be attached to the surface with adhesive tape)
Why is pure thermocouple material decisive for the exact measurement result?
Thermocouples are defined by their thermocouple pairing. A type K thermocouple has a NiCr leg and a Ni leg, which are characterized by an individual electrical conductivity. In order to ensure that this electrical conductivity remains the same over the entire measuring distance and thus the measuring accuracy is not impaired by e.g. If the material is changed, it should always be ensured that all components of the temperature sensor consist of pure thermocouples.
