OMEGA introduces the next generation of our fast response surface mount thermocouples. The new SA1XL surface thermocouple achieves response times of less than 0.15 seconds. These surface thermocouples are constructed using a Polyimide/ fiberglass junction insulation along with a fiberglass-insulated lead wire.
For more demanding applications, Stainless Steel Overbraid is available; add "-SB" option to part number. Consult Sales for pricing, or se e the Product Specs PDF. The SA1XL can be used as a self-adhering thermocouple for temperatures up to 260°C (500°F) or it can be cemented in place for use at temperatures up to 315°C (600°F).

Worked well - when they workedI bought 20 of these and they generally worked well. However, 4 of them did not function. The adhesive was good enough, but I wish it was stronger.

Quality of product has dropped in recent yearsHaving issues similar to those described by other users with units DOA. We have utilized this product for years (20-100 units/year) with little to no issues. We had been satisfied with the build quality and the ability to reuse these units several times if carefully applied/removed (5 stars), but within the last 1-2 years we have started to receive units that have been DOA (plug them in out of the box before even installing or removing adhesive backing, with no readout).
The 5-packs that we are now receiving generally have 1-2 units DOA (you're lucky if this is discovered out of the box rather than after spending time installing it), not sure how this could be seen as acceptable, especially if a simple "These were received DOA" from the customer does not result in shipping of functional replacement units as long as the DOA units are returned. I have already sent back some of the bad units with a similar response from Omega indicating that a "full evaluation" would be performed. I received no additional information following the return of the units.
Please Omega, revert back to whatever manufacturing process you were utilizing prior to these issues arising.

ehhReceived first set and 3 of 5 didn't work immediately straight out of packaging would get no reading on meter. other two proceeded to break and come apart soon there after. Received 5 probes in replacement very easily however one of these didn't work fresh out of the box also. wouldn't order these again.

Too FragileWe have ordered several packs of these thermocouples and even taking the most care we can to not damage them during installation, at least 1 of 5 does not work after it is installed. There seem to be some that do not work right out of the box, even before the tape is removed from the adhesive strip (so apparently these came from the factory not working). This product is ideal for a lot of what we do but we are frustrated with the high rate of product failure before use.

Quick Temperature ResponseThe product was quick to respond after being tied into the data recording system. The thermocouples had to be attached to the product, subject extreme temperature and then moved to the actual use of product unit. The thin nature of the wire allowed a few thermocouples to break off right at the end of the adhesive end as was expected. Heavier wire would be better but that would have slowed response time the customer demanded. Very useful product and easy to work with.
