What products and services does TE Wire & Cable offer?

TE Wire has been known as a master of temperature sensing and specialty wire and cable since it was first founded in 1941 during WWII. We participate in three main areas of wire and cable: aerospace/composite, OEM, and metallurgy. TE Wire & Cable maintains an in-house laboratory directly certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) allowing it to calibrate its own wire, which, in turn provides a higher quality product with lower cost and improved efficiency. TE Wire is a Marmon Wire & Cable/Berkshire Hathaway company.

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.
