Compensation Cables

Compensation cables are connecting cables with conductors made of materials which only in a limited temperature range have the same thermoelectric properties as the thermocouple itself.               Compensating cables are marked with a „C“ behind the identification letter for the thermocouple. For example, „KC“ means that the cable is a compensating cable for the thermocouple type K.
