Thermocouple Stripanels are available in 2 to 12 circuits - Color Coded per ANSI Thermocouple Color Codes. Thermocouple type and circuit numbers are marked on face of Stripanel with corresponding circuit numbers and polarity identification on the back. Stripanels are numbered starting from "1" unless specified otherwise. Panel bodies molded of glass filled thermoset compounds (will not melt) for high strength and dependability. The color coded panels will withstand ambient temperatures to 400°F (205°C) continuous and 500°F (260°C) intermittent. High-Temperature Panels (all Hi-Temp panels are color coded red) will withstand ambient temperatures to 800°F (425°C) continuous and 1000°F (540°C) intermittent. Inserts are spring loaded collet type to assure positive full contact with the negative insert larger making it virtually impossible to mismate. For corrosive applications, gold or nickel plated prongs and inserts are available. Caution - system errors can result from use of plated contacts if significant thermal gradients exist at connector.
