Industrial strength temperature sensor
The AKCP thermocouple is perfect for use in heavy industries, such as petrochemical and metal processing.
Product Code: TCXX
Powered by the base unit
J-K Thermocouple Adapters available
The AKCP thermocouple is perfect for use in heavy industries, such as petrochemical and metal processing. With an ability to measure from -200ºC (-328ºF) up to 800ºC (1472ºF) it is also suited to those low temperatures found in cryogenics and medical applications.
Available in both J and K type thermocouple
For use with the J or K type thermocouple adapter
Works with securityProbe series only
Wide temperature range for use in a variety of industrial applications
Powered by securityProbe, no additional power necessary
Plugs directly into the AKCP J or K type thermocouple adapter
RJ-45 connection for easy and simple installation
Full autosense including disconnect alarm
Power source: powered by the sensorProbe. No Additional power needed.
Power Consumption: Typical 7.80 mWatt, 1.56 mA
K type thermocouple
The K type thermocouple is the most commonly found and used thermocouple type. The tip is made from a +ve electrode of chromel and a -ve electrode of alumel metal. It is less sensitive than the J type thermocouple but has a wider temperature range.
200ºC to +900ºC
J type thermocouple
The J type thermocouple has a +ve electrode of Iron and a -ve electrode of constantan metal (a copper-nickle alloy). It has a lower range than the J type thermocouple but a higher sensitivity.
200ºC to +750ºC
With the securityProbes autosense function the sensor is automatically detected and configured when plugged in. Setup is quick and easy, with the user only needing to setup the thresholds required for high and low warning/critical levels and any notifications required. This is simply done using securityProbes web based interface. No calibration is required.
