Product Information

Product Description

Authorized North America Distributor StampThe AKCP thermocouple is perfect for use in heavy industries, such as petrochemical and metal processing. With measurements from -200ºC (-328ºF) up to 800ºC (1472ºF) it is also suited to those low temperatures found in cryogenics and medical applications.

The thermocouple adapters are designed to integrate either the AKCP thermocouple, or a third party thermocouple with the securityProbe and sensorProbe+ base units. Available in either J or K type adapter it subscribes to the industry standard for thermocouples.

Thermocouples are typically used in heavy industry and cryogenics fields due to their accuracy and resistance to extremes of high and low temperatures. Setup is easy. Plug your thermocouple into the adapter, and then connect the adapter to an intelligent sensor port on the securityProbe or sensorProbe+ base unit (not included). A free 5ft CAT5 cable is supplied to do this setup. Once connected the securityProbe or sensorProbe+ recognizes the thermocouple automatically and configures the unit.

All the user needs to do is set the thresholds for high and low warning and critical levels.
