Thermocouple Extension/Compensating Cable
These cables can also be termed as instrumentation
cables, since they are used for process temperature measurement. The
construction is similar to paired instrumentation cable but the conductor
material is different. Thermocouples are used in processes to sense
temperature and is connected to the pyrometers for indication and control.
The thermocouple and pyrometers are electrically conducted by thermocouple
extension/compensating cables. The conductors used for these cables are
required to have similar thermo-electric (emf) properties as that of the
thermocouple used for sensing the temperature. The cables are manu-factured
as per IS:8784, ANSI-MC 96. 1, B.S., ENI, DIN and customers specification.
