  High Temperature Thermocouples are defined as sensors used at temperatures of 2000°F and beyond. These Sensors are generally made from refractory/noble metals and refractory ceramics.
Temperatures up to 5000°F can be obtained by using special design techniques and materials that have extended EMF tables. Applications can vary from extremely high-temperature furnaces to rocket engines and munitions.

For any applications regarding the above temperature sensors that are not profiled in the overall reference sections, please consult Convectronics’ Engineers for application, design or technical information on your current or future requirements. 1-800-633-0166
