Overbraiding and Fitting

Unique OMEGA™ family of high temperature types J, K, E or N thermocouples are double-protected with abrasion-resistant Inconel overbraid with high temperature ceramic fiber insulation. A temperature rating of 980°C (1800°F)continuous service and 1090°C (2000°F) short-term service makes these products ideal for many high temperature measurement applications. They are unexcelled for profiling ovens and furnaces. The 20-gage solid conductor thermocouple wires are insulated with braided Nextel® ceramic Over the ceramic fiber is a rugged overbraid of Inconel 600® –a tough, high-temperature, high nickel content alloy. Five convenient styles are available in 3 ft. and 10 ft. lengths for high temperature measurement applications.

Wire Gage: 20 gage solid–standard limits of error
Insulation: Nextel® ceramic fiber
Overbraiding & Fittings: Inconel 600®
Temperature: 980°C (1800°F) continuous,1090°C ( 2000°F) short-term service, depending on thermocouple type.
Termination: Ceramic beaded leads with compensated spade lugs, OMEGA™ OSTW 220°C (425°F) male connector, or OMEGA™ NHXH high temperature 650°C (1200°F) ceramic male connector

Probe Style
  Style 1   A grounded junction thermocouple with the Inconel overbraid welded to form a smooth rounded tip for all general purpose applications.
Style 2 A general purpose, bead welded, exposed junction thermocouple.
Style 3 An exposed junction, bead welded junction thermocouple with an Inconel collar to clamp the probe to a surface, or to secure it into a hole or any fabrication.
Style 4 Grounded junction. It can be bolted to a surface, or the Inconel eye can hook the thermocouple to a conveyor flight. Ungrounded junction versions are available. Contact sales for more information.
Style 5 Has an Inconel air hood to protect the beaded wire exposed junction. This design can be clamped to a surface, hooked to a conveyor flight, or bolted to a surface by using the through hole at the open end of the hood.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Out-of-box accuracy issue This item seems well built, and came in time - but was off from room temperature by -25F right out of the box. I'm working with Omega to see if they'll replace it; I understand the need to learn and make corrections - but it's a little frustrating to wait for that process.

Do the thermocouples have a required installed orientation?

Asked by: enycel
Thank you for your inquiry. No required install orientation. Thermocouples are very flexible in-terms of how they are installed. You try to put them in the best position to get your temperature reading.

Do these thermocouples come with a calibration certificate?

Asked by: Teresa12
Thank you for your inquiry. These sensors only come with a Certificate of Conformance (CAL-1). CAL-1 documents that the products you buy comply with Omega's specifications. If you need a NIST certificate of calibration with this product, please send a quote request to

Can these be ordered in a custom length? Can the probe end be welded to a surface?

Asked by: JustinM
Yes the probes can be ordered in custom lengths and if you use the configure now feature on the page you can select that on your own. The style 4 connection should allow a weld instead of using the screw hole but heat should be kept to a minimum.
