RS PRO IEC Colour Coded Miniature PCB Mount Thermocouple Socket Connectors

From RS PRO a versatile and high quality miniature PCB mount thermocouple socket connector colour coded in accordance with IEC. This female connector features solid brass PCB pins allowing direct mounting onto a board and also has provision for a CJC (Cold Junction Compensation) sensor. This thermocouple connector is ideal for connecting your thermocouple probe or wire terminals to extension or compensating cables as well as providing a quick, safe and error-free way of replacing your existing thermocouples. The thermocouple connector housing is made from a rugged glass-filled thermoplastic which is impact resistant and able to withstand high temperatures of up to 220°C. The contacts on this female connector accept flat polarised pins to ensure an accurate connection. The colour coded housing has the thermocouple type clearly indicated on the front for easy identification.

What is a Thermocouple Connector?

These thermocouple connectors are an accurate and convenient way of interconnecting your temperature sensing components. Using these connectors allows a chain to be formed from the measuring tip of your temperature sensor to the host computer or meter. It is important that all the components in the chain are made from the same thermocouple material to prevent any alteration or distortion of the original signal. To achieve this, thermocouple connectors have pins made from the same material as the thermocouple they are being used to connect or a compensating material. The connector housing has the thermocouple type clearly printed on it and is also colour coded to allow easy identification. The thermocouple wires are connected to the socket which can then be mated with a miniature thermocouple plug connector.

Features and Benefits

• Contacts made from true thermocouple alloys or a compensating material for accurate signal transmission
• IEC colour coding for quick and easy identification
• Solid PCB pins for direct board mounting
• Provision for CJC sensor
• Accepts polarized flat pin contacts for an accurate connection
• Made from rugged glass-filled thermoplastic
• Able to withstand a high temperature of 220°C
• Compatible with flow solder assembly
• For use with stranded or solid wires
• Polarity and thermocouple type clearly marked on housings


These miniature PCB mount thermocouple connectors are used in any application where thermocouples are installed, extended or replaced. Their robust construction makes these miniature socket connectors ideal for use even in the most demanding temperature measurement applications.
