February 20, 2013 - Measuring 1.86 x 1.60 x 0.22 in., TC500 accepts thermocouple leads stripped of their insulation to .75 in. Two wires overlap when inserted, and leads are clamped together on both sides of thermocouple block for optimal electrical connection. This is accomplished without requiring any other compensation metals or contacts, eliminating the risk of cold junctions. Along with 15 A and 600 V ratings, features include compatibility with 20-14 AWG wire sizes.
