Extension grade thermocouples have wider tolerances.

Generally they are used in more friendly environments and do not use the higher performance insulations and or jackets.

Thermocouple wire can be furnished shielded and non-shielded, jacketed and non-jacketed.

In tough applications, stainless steel braid or interlock armor tubing is sometimes used to offer excellent mechanical protection.

14, 16, 20 and 24 gauge thermocouple wire sizes are generally available with 20 AWG being the most popular.

See cable for multi-pair options, also see shielding braids & armor for protective tubing.
