This K type Thermocouple is custom made to MoTeC's specification supplied with a compression fitting and a heat resistant Miniature connector.
K-type thermocouples come in either an exposed tip (# 58005) or an enclosed tip (# 58009). Exposed tip is faster in measuring change in temperature but is more susceptible to breakage from vibration or shock waves. Enclosed tip thermocouples are more reliable but deliver a slower update rate of between three to eight times per second.
Commonly used to measure:
- Exhaust gas temperature
- Brake pad temperature
- Charge air temperature
Thermocouples require cold junction calibration to accurately determine the output voltage.
Use the E888 PN #14007 Expander Module.
