As you approach higher and higher temperatures for your applications, it’s hard not to think of fiberglass insulated products. S-Glass and E-Glass, we refer to as Q-Glass and G-Glass respectively.  These braided products, come in many different variations depending on the use, not to mention there are also different saturants, grades of thermocouple, shields, and armors that can be applied over/to your wire or cable.

Understanding Noise Levels and Installation Considerations

 

In part one, we discussed the four types of noise frequently found in instrumentation circuits (i.e., Common Mode, Cross Talk, Static and Magnetic) as well as the methods used to correct the problems they cause.

 

Next, we discuss the types of noise levels found in various environments and some installation considerations that will help you mitigate or completely eliminate the noise problems.

4 Common Sources of Noise that Affect Instrumentation Circuits

 

It can be a real challenge to select the right thermocouple wire. You not only have to determine the type of thermocouple elements to use, but also the temperature range, calibration accuracy and insulation type  for your application. With thousands of different configurations, it’s still far less complicated than thermocouple and instrumentation cable circuits. Regardless, it is important to know how to control noise in instrumentation circuits.

3 Basic Steps to Selecting the Right Thermocouple Wire for Your Application

Posted by Pat Durkin

May 20, 2014 11:00:00 AM

 

When it comes to selecting the right thermocouple wire, it’s all about temperature and accuracy. It is vital to select a TC wire that fits within the temperature range of your application. Why? Because a wire that doesn’t fit the required temperature range will not provide accurate temperature measurement. And this could lead to system or parts damage if the elements of your application get too hot.
