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

K type thermocouple
The K type thermocouple is the most commonly found and used thermocouple type. The tip is made from a +ve electrode of chromel and a -ve electrode of alumel metal. It is less sensitive than the J type thermocouple but has a wider temperature range.
J type thermocouple
The J type thermocouple has a +ve electrode of Iron and a -ve electrode of constantan metal (a copper-nickle alloy). It has a lower range than the J type thermocouple but a higher sensitivity.
With the securityProbes autosense function the sensor is automatically detected and configured when plugged in. Setup is quick and easy, with the user only needing to setup the thresholds required for high and low warning/critical levels and any notifications required. This is simply done using securityProbes web based interface. No calibration is required.
