Pomona's new line of Temperature Probes provide fast, accurate readings for a variety of electronic and industrial applications

Probes And Accessories For DMM Users

Pomona Electronics introduces a complete line of temperature probes and accessories designed to provide fast and accurate readings for liquid, gas, gel, air and surface temperature measurements. The new line is ideal for use with K-type digital thermometers or DMMs with a temperature function and includes nine K-Type thermocouples, two non-contact infrared probes and a variety of connector accessories.

The thermocouple probes offer measurement ranges from -196C to +1093C (-320F to +2000F) and temperature tolerance of 2.2C or 0.75%. Designed to provide trouble free use in harsh environments, several of the probes feature thermoplastic handles that can withstand temperatures of up to 104C (220F). These probes are on 48-inches of K-Type cable which permits easy access in hard-to-reach areas.

The non-contact probes incorporate infrared technology for temperature measurements in hazardous, easily contaminated or hard-to-reach applications, and feature sheathed banana plugs for use with DMMs. Two models of infrared probes are available, offering a measurement range of -18C to +260C (0F to 500F) or an extended range of measurements from 0C to +538C (32F to 1000F).




The addition of this versatile selection of infrared and K-type thermocouple probes to Pomona's product line offers test instrument users the broadest selection of quality test accessories. The extensive assortment of probe tip shapes and sizes provides technicians in a wide range of electronic assembly, industrial, plant maintenance, field service and test lab applications with the exact tool they need to obtain accurate temperature readings.

Pomona's temperature accessories also include Do-It-Yourself mini-connectors for K-Type thermocouple wire and an adapter to convert banana jacks to mini-connectors for DMM's designed with the temperature function.

A 48-inch extension cable with male and female Type-K mini-connectors is also offered.
