Thermocouple Connector - PCC-SMP-K

This Thermocouple Connector is perfect for bridging the gap between Type-K thermocouples with standard connectors with a PCB. This little connector is actually the exact part we recommend using with our SparkFun Thermocouple Breakout! Each connector can easily attach to a printed circuit board with its included mounting clip.

If you plan on using this connector with a custom PCB make sure to check out the Datasheet in the Documents section below for mounting dimensions.

Learn how to take readings with a k-type thermocouple using the MAX31855K cold-junction-compensated k-type thermocouple-to-digital converter.

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

    keep in mind, it is typically important that the temperature at this connection is the same as your cold junction compensation. If you use the MAX31855K which has the compensation, then keep your thermocouple to copper junction close to it.

    Spelling error in Description..."standar". Unless the "standar" is a connector that I am not familiar with... :)

    Do you offer the mating plug for this connector (for use with your glass Braid thermocouple)?

    Do you have a Fritzing part/drawing for this?
