EXTENSION AND COMPENSATING CABLES

Armoured cables manufactured with fiberglass, Silicone, PFA, PVC

The extension or compensating cables connect the thermocouple to the measuring instruments located away from the measurement point.

production extension and compensating cables

Siccet offers extension and compensating cables with flexible or solid conductors and silicone rubber, fluoropolymer, thermoplastic compound insulation/membranes.


  • Extension Cable: uses conductors with the same nominal composition of the thermocouple cable to which they are connected, but with wider tolerances. They are identified with the letter "X", in accordance with DIN IEC 60584, which appears next to the letter code that identifies the thermocouple. They are normally tested at a temperature range of 0 °C - 200 °C. Siccet provides extension cable types: EX, KX, JX, NX, TX.

  • Compensating cable: uses conductors that have the same temperature-emf characteristics as the thermocouple but a different nominal composition. They are identified with the letter "C", in accordance with DIN IEC 60584. The letter "C" appears next to the letter code that identifies the thermocouple. Siccet provides compensating cable types: Bc, Kca / KCB, Nc, RCB, Scb.

The choice between extension and compensating cable may be based on economic aspects and/or related to the distance between the measuring instrument and the measuring point.
