Type N Thermocouple
The Type N Thermocouple (Nicrosil / Nisil) shares the same accuracy and temperature limits as the Type K. The type N is slightly more expensive.
|Type N Temperature Range|
|Thermocouple Grade Wire||–454°F to 2,300°F (–270°C to 1260°C)|
|Extension Wire||32°F to 392°F (0 to 200°C)|
|Type N Accuracy|
|Standard||+/- 2.2°C or +/- 0.75%|
|Special Limits of Error||+/- 1.1°C or 0.4%|
Consideration for bare wire type N thermocouple applications: The type N holds up better to oxidation at high temperatures when compared to the type K.
