Thermocouple extension wire is used to economically extend thermocouples to reach instrumentation. Accuracy is maintained because these extension wires are constructed of thermocouple materials and insulated for maximum resistance to application hazards. Wire constructions can be selected for such requirements as high abrasion, moisture and chemical resistance. Shielded wires are available for electrical interference rejection. Metal coverings are available for increased resistance to mechanical stress and abrasion. Insulating and jacketing materials include PVC, TEFLON® FEP TFE PFA, Kapton, Fiberglass, Vitreous Silica, Q-glass and Stainless Steel overbraids.
The connection head performs two essential functions: It provides a method of terminating the RTD by means of terminal block or transmitter mounted inside the head. It also provides protection for the element from environment and mechanical conditions.
Thermo Electric’s large device connection head is capable of containing excess coiled lead wire or a number of the large smart transmitters.
