Learn more about our Wire (Cable) Thermocouples
Flexible Cable / Wire Thermocouples
We manufacture and design cable thermocouples, often called wire thermocouples. Cable thermocouples are a very cost effective construction of thermocouple with many options available to attach the sensor to your process. Exposed junctions are common with wire thermocouples as it gives a very quick response. The maximum temperature for a cable thermocouple is determined by its insulation but there are high temperature options such as glass fibre if required.
Made to your specification
There are a wide range of options for our wire/cable thermocouples. They can be constructed with many different insulation types, stranding options, thermocouple types and either exposed, grounded or insulated junctions.

Cable Thermocouple Designs
There are a variety of options when it comes to cable thermocouple design. Select the appropriate design below to view full specifications.
Common Designs Are:
All our thermocouples are custom made, as such we are able to tailor your sensors exactly to your requirements. There are many extra options available including:
Full UKAS or UKAS traceable calibration is available. AMS 2750 F to full or traceable calibration is available.
Plugs or Sockets
Either standard or miniature plugs and sockets can be attached instead of tails.
Material certificates are available on request.
The cable thermocouples cab be stainless steel or tinned copper over-braided for extra toughness.
High Temperature Versions
High temperature options for plugs, sockets and cable can be supplied.
Your own serial, product number or other information attached to sensors via heat shrink cable or metal tags.
Thermocouple junctions can be insulated, exposed or grounded depending on what’s suitable for your application.
Cable thermocouples can be IP68 compatible so they are rated as “dust tight” and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water.
We’ve made cable thermocouples for over 25 years and today we are considered the best choice for custom built temperature sensors in the UK. We continue to apply our expertise and invest in the latest technology to provide our customers with the highest quality temperature sensors available.
