Thermocouples are instruments that are designed to provide temperature measurement of substances and have a variety of applications such as;

  • Medical - research into DNA and hypodermic insertion to detecting a tumour.

  • Vehicle diagnostics - used to monitor and adjust factors such as battery health, exhaust readings, spark plug function and brake performance.

  • Temperature readings in boilers, heating sensors, and ovens

  • Food thermometers, industrial probes, and sensors

What is the difference between screened and unscreened cables?

Screened share a lot in common with unscreened cables however screened cables emit less electromagnetic energy which can cause signal interference with cables that are nearby.
