Extension and instrumentation cable

Extension cable is most commonly used to extend the signal of the thermocouple or the RTD. This cable is made by our supplier Siccet who ensures the highest quality and very competitive prices. Of course, we have a significant stock in case you need the cable urgently.

1. TC/Conductor wire types

Example with TC type K:

K- Thermocouple grade class 1
Thermocouple cables are made of the same material as the original thermocouple and are tested at the same temperature. These special cables are manufactured according to customers' requests.
Insulation and jacket, by ceramic fibre, glassfibre, fluoropolymer, silicone rubber, are suitable for indoor use.

 Kx -Extension Grade 

Extension cables are made of material identical to the thermocouple original one. They are identified with the letter “X”, according to DIN IEC 60584, placed near the code letter identifying the thermocouple. They are normally calibrated and used at a temperature range from 0°C to 200°C. Insulation and jacket by fluoropolymers, silicon rubber, thermoplastic compounds, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Kca- Compensation grade
Compensating wire and strands are made of alloys that do not have to be identical to the corresponding thermocouple. Substitutive material implies nevertheless that the thermoelectric characteristics have to be the same. They are identified with the letter “C”, according to DIN IEC 60584, placed near the code letter identifying the thermocouple. Insulation and jacket by fluoropolymer, silicon rubber, thermoplastic compound, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Conductor wire types:

Cu- Bare copper wires
CuNi- Nickle plated copper
CuAug- Silver plated Copper
CuSn- Tinplated copper

2. Wire construction

Stranded
.x.. for example: 2x0.22 (2 wires, stranded with a wire surface of 0.22)

Solid
..x[../..] for example: 2x[1/20AWG] (2 wires, solid, with a wire diameter of 20AWG)

or:

2x2x[1/0.5] (4 wires, solid,  with a wire diameter of 0.5)
