Thermocouples - Electric Motor Parts & Accessories Australia
They are mostly used in the medium high-temperature range.
Applications include temperature measurement in or on electric motor windings and bearings as well as general industrial applications.
Different housings for different applications make the Thermocouple more durable.
Different materials can be used if specified by the customers.
EX and IECEx versions are available for hazardous areas.
We have versions that suit high vibration applications.
MEC manufacture all types of Thermocouples used in Industry.
What is a Thermocouple?
A thermocouple is an electrical device containing two unique electrical conductors creating an electrical junction. A thermocouple generates a temperature-dependent voltage due to the Seebeck effect, and this voltage can be translated to measure temperature.
Thermocouples are extensively used as temperature sensors.
Commercial thermocouples are low-priced, interchangeable, are provided with standard connectors, and can measure a broad range of temperatures.
In contrast to most other temperature measurement methods, thermocouples are self-powered and need no external form of excitation.
Thermocouples are broadly used in science and industry.
Utilisation includes temperature measurement for kilns, gas turbine exhaust, diesel engines, and different industrial processes.
Thermocouples are also utilised in homes, offices, and companies as the temperature sensors in thermostats and as flame sensors in safety devices for gas-powered appliances.
