MI-Thermocouple Cable

Back to >> Product overview

MI-Thermocouple Cable according to DIN60515

Industrial MI-Thermocouple cable is used in a nearly every temperature measurement application, from -200 up to 1600°C, examples such as plastic industry & power generation to machinery, plant & tank Measurement. They are designed to withstand harsher environments than other sensor types, which is common in industrial applications. 

Our mi-cables are produced under the supervision of our engineers by our partner TRM/MICC (UK) and meet the highest quality standards for our customers.

  • ASTM-E230 special limits, ( ANSI.MC.96.1)
  • IEC60584-2
  • AMS2750


A large variety of mi-thermocouple cables, in the range of Ø 0,25 up to Ø 8,0 mm, can be supplied directly from our stock.

No need to buy complete coils, we offer to cut the mi-cables on customer demand with a small tolerance. This can be done for single mi-cables but also for large projects. Ask our team for the possibilities.

E-Type Thermocouple

Chromel and Constantan are the alloys that form an E-type thermocouple. The temperature range is between 0 to 870°C. This thermocouple does not focus on the oxidation in the atmosphere and can be used in an inert environment. However, they need to be protected against the sulfurous environment. They are commonly used in power plants.

J-Type Thermocouple

J type of thermocouple is formed with Iron and Constantan. 0 to 760°C is its temperature range. Owing to the low-temperature range of the thermocouple, its life span reduces in high temperatures. J types thermocouple is best suited for vacuum and inert environment. Injection molding is one of the most common applications of such types of the thermocouple.

K-Type Thermocouple

Chromel and Alumel form a K-type thermocouple. The temperature range is between 0 and 1200°C. The neutral or oxidizing environment is best suited for these types of the thermocouple. It generates an EMF variation below 1800°F due to hysteresis, which restricts its use in an inert and oxidizing environment below this temperature. They are most commonly used thermocouple in the industry

N-Type Thermocouple

This thermocouple is a combination of alloys Nicrosil and Nisil. The temperature range is between 0 and 1260 °C. Unlike K-type thermocouples, the N-type thermocouple offers very high resistance for degradation due to green rot and hysteresis. They are most commonly used in refineries and petrochemical industries. 

T-Type Thermocouple

It is formed with Copper and Constantan. The temperature range is between -200 to 370°C. This type of thermocouple is suitable for the inert atmosphere as well as the vacuum. They are widely used as they generally resist decomposition even in a moist environment. They are commonly used in food production and cryogenics.

R-Type Thermocouple

A combination of Platinum13%Rhodium and Platinum forms R type thermocouple. The temperature range is between 600 to 1450 °C. It is costlier than S type thermocouple as it contains a higher percentage of Rhodium. Its high accuracy and stability make it an ideal thermocouple to use in Sulfur recovery units.

S-Type Thermocouple

It is a combination of Platinum10%Rhodium and Platinum. The temperature range is between 600 to 1450 °C. S type thermocouple is used in applications involving very high temperatures. This type is widely used across various industries.

B-Type Thermocouple

The alloy combination is of Platinum6%Rhodium and Platinum30%Rhodium. This thermocouple exhibits a temperature range between 1370 to 1700 °C. It is mainly used in applications executed at extremely high temperatures, such as glass production.
