Type R / Type S Precision Thermocouple

The precision thermocouples are used as transfer standards, for high-precision temperature measurements or as calibration standards. The type R / type S thermocouples are precision noble metal thermocouples which can be assembled with a reference junction or with mini plug. They are characterized by the highest available purity of the thermocouple wires.


  • Temperature range: 0°C to 1200 °C
  • configurable
    In our thermometer configurator you can individually configure the thermometer according to many parameters.
  • highest available purity of the thermocouple wires
    The thermocouple wires are specifically thermally treated.
  • small measurement uncertainties with DAkkS calibration certificate
    The thermometer can be calibrated at fixed temperature points with smaller measurement uncertainties.
