Thermocouple, extension and compensating cable


Our partner for temperature sensor cables

Kamet is an official partner for thermocouple, extension and compensating cable from Italian manufacturer Siccet. These are types of cable used to extend a signal from a thermocouple to a measuring instrument. When these cables are made of the original material used for the thermocouple or RTD then they are called thermocouple or extension cables (depending on the grade). When these cables run long distances, through ambient temperatures, then a cable that is comparable in accuracy yet made from more cost-effective materials, is preferable. This is the thermocouple compensating grade of cable.

In Siccet, Kamet has found the ideal partner for these cables. With a very high production capacity (15 million metres of cable a year!), by partnering with Siccet, Kamet can supply competitively priced cables in bulk for our customers.

A family-owned company, Siccet was founded in 1977 and currently has numerous production lines that are used to manufacture thermocouple, extension and compensating cable in a range of shapes and sizes. Siccet was producing thermocouple cables and RTD cables from the start and temperature is still their core business today. Their reliability, capacity and years of specialized expertise make them an excellent partner for Kamet.

Our Siccet products

Siccet’s ISO 9001 certified cable comes in three grades: thermocouple grade, extension grade, and compensation grade.

Thermocouple grade

Thermocouple grade means the alloy is exactly the same as the alloy in the temperature sensor and therefore functions similarly to the thermocouple/RTD. In this grade we stock Siccet’s RTD or thermocouple cables in silver-plated, nickel-plated, tin-plated & pure copper. The choice of material depends on the application of course.

RTD cable

Extension grade

Extension grade cables have the same nominal composition as the thermocouple or RTD cable, but are calibrated as class 1 up to 200°C in accordance with DIN 43710. They are indicated by adding the letter ‘x’.

Softcable wires

Compensation grade

Compensation grade cable (compensating cable) has a different nominal composition than thermocouple cable and is made using more economical materials. They are also more flexible. These cables are  indicated by the letter ‘C’.

Kamet stocks a wide range of  Siccet’s  thermocouple, extension and compensating cable for all types of thermocouples. These are available with a variety of insulation materials: PVC, Silicon, PTFE, MFA, PFA, Fiberglass and Ceramic fiber. Stainless steel braiding can be used to protect the insulation material in adverse industrial environments, thus offering better mechanical protection.

MULTi cable kamet

Multi-pair thermocouple cables

Multi-pair thermocouple cables consist of groups of insulated thermocouple wires that are twisted in pairs and bundled together in the same form as multi-conductor cables. Siccet has a large number of machines, specifically designed for the production of multi-pair cables.

There is a weekly shipment of cable from Siccet to Kamet to ensure a reliable and constant cable flow that both Kamet and our customers can count on.
