Thermocouple Wire Specifications

Typical magnetic field-dependent temperature errors ΔT/T (%) at B (magnetic induction)

Type E thermocouple wire2
T (K)2.5 T 8 T14 T

2 Useful when T ≥ 10 K.  Refer to comments for Chromel-AuFe (0.07%)

Range of use

 Minimum limit Maximum limit3
Type E 3.15 K 953 K
Type K 3.15 K 1543 K

3 Upper limit dependent on wire size; to achieve higher than 473 K, insulation must be removed
