Hand Held Thermocouples (Type 5)

General Purpose Thermocouples - Hand Held Thermocouples

Hand Held thermocouple with coiled lead and miniature thermocouple plug
We offer a wide range of hand held thermocouple sensors to suit a variety of applications. Depending on the thermocouple type, these hand held thermocouple sensors can be supplied with a 3, 6, 16 or 32 ft (extended) coiled lead and a miniature flat pin plug which makes them suitable for all our hand held indicators as well as most other brands of indicators. They can also be connected to other instrumentation by using thermocouple extension cable and the appropriate connectors.

Style Description Tip Image
5AA 

General Purpose Thermocouple Probe

Mineral insulated thermocouple with a stainless steel sheath. Insulated hot junction. The tip and sheath may be operated up to 2010ºF and the sheath may be bent. Can be made to any length in a choice of 0.125", 0.188" or 0.250" diameter.
Hand Held General Purpose Thermocouple Tip
5BB 

Spring Loaded Surface Probe

This sensor has a ribbon style butt welded sensing tip which allows a fast response when placed upon a solid surface.
The tip is rated to 750°F and the handle to 275°F.
Sheath: 0.250" dia x 6.5" long (from handle to tip)
Hand Held Spring Loaded Surface Probe Tip
5CC 

Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe

A robust version of style 5BB with a larger butt welded ribbon junction. Whilst stronger, the response time is slightly slower; however, in most applications it is perfectly acceptable. The tip is rated to 750°F and the handle to 275°F.
Hand Held Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe Tip
5DD 

Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend

As style 5BB, but the sensing tip is positioned at a right angle for difficult to reach applications. The tip is rated to 750°F and the handle to 275°F. Sheath: 0.250" dia x 7.7" long (5.5" to start of bend).

5EE 

Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend

A robust version of style 5CC with a larger butt welded ribbon junction. Whilst stronger, the response time is slightly slower; however, in most applications it is perfectly acceptable. The tip is rated to 750°F and the handle to 275°F.

5FF 

Fast Response Air/Gas Thermocouple

This style is ideal for measuring the temperature of air or gas flows as it has a perforated tip to allow for almost instant measurements. The stem is rated to 1450ºF and the handle to 275ºF. Sheath 0.190" diameter x 6.1" long (from handle to tip).
Hand Held Air and gas thermocouple
5GG 

Needle Penetration Sensor

This thermocouple can be used for penetrating semi solid materials (food, plastics, rubber etc.) as it has a sharp sensing tip. The stem is rated to 1450ºF and the handle to 275ºF. Can be made in either 0.078" or 0.196" diameter up to 3.5" or 11.4" long respectively.

5HH 

Heavy Duty Needle Penetration thermocouple

All stainless steel construction, this sensor is similar to the standard Needle Penetration Sensor, however due to the 90º cable exit, the sensor can be hammered into hard surfaces such as frozen food. Can be made to any length up to 6" , 0.250" diameter.
