Product Description

The type K thermocouple sensor measures temperature at the tip of the cable and is intended for Maturix® Temperature and Strength Monitoring.

Install the thermocouple, connect it to the transmitter and the temperature data will be sent continuously.

The cable consists of two durable conductors. It is insulated with PTFE (Teflon), which has excellent abrasion, flame and humidity resistance. The cable is designed to be both strong and with high flexibility so that it is suitable for multiple purposes.

The connector is the standard male Type K miniature with flat pins that allows easy connection to the transmitter.

Type K thermocouples are simple to use, versatile, widely available, and cost-effective temperature sensors ideal for concrete monitoring.


Type K Thermocouples are available as ready-to-use cables (1 m, 3 m, 5 m, and 10 m) and as parts for self-assembly (100 meters roll and connectors).
