Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 February 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Temperature-measuring instruments): 17.200.20
scope:

It is necessary for thermocouple temperature measurement that the electro-motive force (abbreviated as e.m.f. hereafter) of the thermocouple circuit is precisely measured by a measuring instrument. A thermocouple is electrically connected to the instrument by a proper pair of electric cables. IEC 60584-3 standardizes these cables. It specifies identification and manufacturing tolerances for extension and compensating cables (mineral insulated extension and compensating cables are not included) provided directly to users of industrial processes. These tolerances are determined with respect to the e.m.f. versus temperature relationship of IEC 60584-1. The requirements for extension and compensating cables for use in industrial process control are specified.

Extension and compensating cables may consist of a single strand (solid) wire or multistranded wire for which this document is applied. Specification for extension and compensating conductors of forms of rods, flat wires or strips can be established by agreement between suppliers and users.
