Temperature sensing

WATCOUPLE nonstandard thermocouple uses metals such as alloy 600 and nickel-silicon that ensure accuracy, stability, and availability. Materials enable sensor to be 4 times more accurate than type K special limits, and last 3 times longer. Sensor is based on IEEE 1451.4 smart sensor technology, communicating voltage table, calibration, manufacturing, and traceability information.

87V digital multimeter (DMM) accurately measures voltage and frequency on variable frequency drives (VFDs), which create electrical noise that renders other DMMs unusable for this application. DMM also features built in thermometer, larger display digits, bright white backlight, and a magnetic hanger. Safety features include 600-V CAT IV and 1000-V CAT III ratings; it is engineered to withstand voltage spikes of 8 kV.
