Standard Specification for Miniature Thermocouple Connectors

Abstract

This specification covers separable single-circuit miniature thermocouple connectors with two flat pins. Connectors covered by this specification must be rated for continuous use to at least 300 °F (150 °C), but they may optionally be rated higher. This specification does not cover multiple-circuit connectors, multi-pin connectors, standard size connectors, connectors intended primarily for panel mounting, or high-temperature connectors (for example, those designed for continuous use at temperatures significantly above approximately 500 °F (260 °C)). The connectors shall be rated based on their performance during contact resistance, thermal gradient, and insulation resistance tests.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers separable single-circuit miniature thermocouple connectors with two flat pins. Connectors covered by this specification must be rated for continuous use to at least 300 F (150 C), but they may optionally be rated higher.

1.2 This specification does not cover multiple-circuit connectors, multi-pin connectors, standard size connectors, or connectors intended primarily for panel mounting. High-temperature connectors (for example, those designed for continuous use at temperatures significantly above approximately 500 F (260 C)) are not intended to be covered by this specification.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 9, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
