Type B Precision-Thermocouple 0°C to 1500°C

Type B Precision-Thermocouple

The precision thermocouples are used as transfer standards, for high-precision temperature measurements or as calibration standards at high temperatures up to 1500°C.


  • Temperature range: 0°C to 1500°C
  • 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
