A thermocouple is a sensor for measuring temperature, that couples two dissimilar metals at a joined sensing end. Thermocouple wire is wired that utilizes a thermocouple from the point of sensing to the point of cold junction compensation where the signal is measured.

Thermocouple wire is often used in such applications as science, industry, instrumentation, and heating appliances. Pelican Wire stocks a wide variety of common thermocouple constructions, including J, K, T, and E. We can design custom thermocouple wires that meet your specific needs.

For fast turnaround we stock bare and insulated thermocouple wire. We can also design insulated thermocouple wire to your exact specifications, including:

  • Calibration type
  • Wire gauge
  • Individual calibration requirements.

We Can Take it One Step Further

Typically, thermocouple cable construction consists of a pair of insulated wires, one positive and the other negative, that are laid together, parallel to one another, with a protective jacket. Pelican Wire can extrude, tape, wrap, serve, and braid various insulation materials on thermocouple wire.

At Pelican Wire, we are capable of jacketing wires with extremely heat resistance materials that are unmatched by our competitors.

Pelican Wire offers all types of thermocouple wire, including:

Type J, Type K, Type T, Type N, Type E, Type B, Type R, Type S
