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.
