Part 2: Applying New Low-Drift Thermocouple Cable Technology

 

In Part 1, we discussed the history of mineral insulated thermocouple as the industrial temperature measurement sensor of choice and recent developments that will further enhance the temperature range and performance of type K and type N thermocouples.

 

In Part 2, we’ll define how you can learn more about the new low-drift mineral insulated thermocouple cable design and development as well as what makes this new design a unique solution for industrial temperature measurement and how it can be applied to the industry.

Part 1: Mineral Insulated Thermocouple: Then and Now

 

Introduction

 

The base metal mineral insulated (MI) thermocouple is the most widely used temperature sensor for industrial temperature measurements for over 80 years. The reasons why this has been and will continue to be the case is due to the fundamentals of the thermocouple itself, that is, it is a sensor which is simple, robust, low cost with an easily measured output.

Thermocouples are the most frequently used temperature sensor in the heat process and control industries, with the majority of applications falling within the range of 500 to 1500°C. There are newer technologies like fiber optic distributed temperature sensing systems, wireless sensing, laser IR temperature sensors, IR Cameras, and thermal noise thermometers. However, most exhibit high error, packaging problems, high price or a combination of these issues.

5 Increasingly Hot Thermocouple Wire & Cable Market Trends

Posted by Vlad Fedorchak

Mar 9, 2017 10:31:17 AM

In the past year, I jotted down a number of wire and cable market trends that I’ve noticed. Let’s review a few recent trends and perhaps we can get a discussion going on how we all must evolve to become more dynamic businesses going forward. Some of these trends are general in nature and some are industry-specific, but relate in some way to the overall wire and cable market.
