This International Standard establishes the requirements for simplex, duplex and triplex mineral-insulated metal-sheathed thermocouple cables and thermocouples, which are intended for use in general industrial applications. The abbreviation MIMS (for "mineral-insulated metal-sheathed") will be used hereafter. It covers thermocouple cables and thermocouples with only base-metal conductors of Types T, J, E, K and N. The specifications in this standard apply to new thermocouple cables and thermocouple units as delivered to the user. They do not apply to the product after use.
External seals, terminations, connections and other accessories are not within the scope of this International Standard.
This standard does not apply to precious metal thermocouple cables and thermocouples. The special requirements for nuclear primary loop applications are dealt with in the other standards.
