Thermocouple, type N


Type N Temperature Range:

Maximum continuous operating temperature: up to 2,300F (1,260C)

Type N Thermocouple Grade Wire Short term use: 2,336F (1,280C)

Thermocouple grade wire, -454 to 2300F (-270 to 1,260C)

Extension wire, 32 to 392F (0 to 200C)

Type N Accuracy (whichever is greater):

Standard: +/- 2.2C or +/- .75%

Special Limits of Error: +/- 1.1C or 0.4%

Consideration for bare wire type N thermocouple applications:

The type N holds up better to oxidation at high temperatures when compared to the type K.
