Type K thermocouple

Type K, also known as a NiCr-Ni thermocouple, is made up of two conductors, a nickel-chrome alloy (positive leg) and a predominantly nickel alloy (negative leg). Thermocouple Type K is an inexpensive component, suited to an extensive range of applications. It is the most popular high temperature thermocouple. Some of the following characteristics contribute to that: the widest range of operation, from – 200 ° to + 1260 °C, excellent sensitivity at around: 41 µV/°C and the most stable of the inexpensive thermocouples.
