PASPORT Temperature Type K Sensor - PS-2134



From the very cold (liquid nitrogen) to the very hot (flame), our Type K Temperature Sensor has a wide enough range (–200 to 1000 °C) to measure it all. The rugged sensing element is a standard Type K Thermocouple with high temperature insulation. The low thermal mass of the sensor means a fast response time. The long probe length makes measurements in hard-to-reach places easier.

Typical Applications

  • Monitor the temperature of a solar oven
  • Map the temperature of a candle flame
  • Measure temperatures down to -200 °C (liquid nitrogen)
