Things to remember when working with “K” Thermocouple Wire.    Remember RED is always negative.

Do not mis-match other thermocouple calibrations ( ie: J, T, E, etc...) to thermocouple plugs and jacks.  This creates serious thermocouple error.  Remember to match the color codes Yellow to Yellow "+" and Red to Red "–"

If connecting wire to miniature thermocouple plugs and jacks it's easier to attach 24 ga or smaller wires and use a cable clamp to prevent shorting of the wires inside the connector.

If using standard size thermocouple plugs and jacks make sure to use a cable clamp to secure the wire to the plug or jack.  Additionally this will help stop the wires from twisting and shorting inside the connector.  When that happens you have created a new thermocouple junction and this means your instrument will read  ambient temperature and not the process temperature.
