RS PRO IEC Colour Coded Standard Thermocouple Panel Mounting Socket Connectors

From RS PRO a standard size panel mounting thermocouple socket connector colour-coded in accordance with IEC specification. The connector housing features a moulded fascia for a flush fit when mounting through the panel. The connector is made from a rugged thermoplastic and is colour-coded for easy thermocouple identification. The contacts are designed to accept polarized round pins to ensure an accurate connection. A clip is supplied with this female connector enabling it to be secured quickly and easily to the rear of the panel

What is a Thermocouple Connector?

These standard thermocouple connectors are an accurate and convenient way of interconnecting your temperature sensing components. Using thermocouple connectors allows a chain to be formed from the measuring tip of your temperature sensor to the host computer or meter. It is important that all the components in the chain are made from the same thermocouple material to prevent any alteration or distortion of the original signal. To achieve this, thermocouple connectors have contacts made from the same material as the thermocouple they are being used to connect or a compensating material. The connector housing has the thermocouple type clearly printed on it and is also colour-coded for easy identification. The thermocouple wires are simply screwed down into place using two captive screw clamps.

Features and Benefits

• Contacts made from true thermocouple alloys or a compensating material for accurate signal transmission
• Colour-coded for quick and easy identification
• Moulded fascia for flush fitting on front of panel
• Accepts polarized round pin contacts for an accurate connection
• Made from rugged glass-filled thermoplastic
• Able to withstand temperatures of up to 120°C
• Simple captive screw clamp connection for quick assembly
• Polarity and thermocouple type clearly marked on the socket housing
• Supplied with clip for quick and secure mounting to the panel


These standard thermocouple connectors are used industrial applications where thermocouples are installed, extended or replaced. Their robust construction makes these thermocouple connectors ideal for use in demanding temperature measurement applications.
