Standard Specification for Thermocouple Connectors
|Publication Date:||1 December 2015|
|ICS Code (Temperature-measuring instruments):||17.200.20|
This specification covers separable single-circuit thermocouple connectors with two round pins. Connectors covered by this specification must be rated for continuous use to at least 300°F (150°C), but they may optionally be rated to a higher temperature.
This specification does not cover multiple-circuit connectors, multi-pin connectors, miniature connectors, or connectors intended primarily for panel mounting. High temperature connectors (for example, those designed for continuous use at temperatures above approximately 500°F (260°C)) are not intended to be covered by this specification.
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard.
The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 9, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use
