Extension cable for both Type K and Type J thermocouples is available with either an overall shield (OS) or with individually shielded pairs with an overall shield (SPOS). These cables allow the connection of multiple field sensors to operating instrumentation or PLC input cards with one run versus having to install multiple extension wires.
The 20AWG thermocouple extension cable is available in 2, 4, and 8 twisted pairs. Alphanumeric print on the twisted pairs makes identifying the pairs for installation and troubleshooting easy.
The thermocouple extension cable is UL PLTC rated. PLTC cable (Power Limited Tray Cable) is rated at 105°C, 300V and is approved for use in Class I, Division 2 Hazardous Locations.
AutomationDirect’s UL approved thermocouple extension wire and cable starts at $0.87 per foot and is cut to length in 1-foot increments with a low 20-foot minimum length.
