A thermocouple is a sensor for measuring temperature, It consists of two dissimilar metals, joined together at one end. When the junction of the two metals is heated or cooled a voltage is produced that can interpreted by a temperature controller, high limit er display device. There are two common constructions for these: Tube and Wire and Mineral Insulated. The tube and wire uses an empty stainless tube with a wire inside which has a welded tip incorporating the wire junction. This construction is typically used to 480°C. The Mineral Insulated construction uses a highly compacted stainless sheath with solid conductors encased in magnesium Exide insulation. This construction offers a wider variety of diameters, allows for the sensors to be bent in the field and for temperatures to 12004C. These sensors are available is a huge range of physical packages with a variety of lead wire, housing. And mounting options
