The M8M series thermocouples, with their small
diameter probes and M8 connectors, can be used
where other sensors can't. Their smaller size allows for
measurements in tight spaces, or when you need to
have a minimum impact on the thermal environment that
you are measuring.
These thermocouple sensors are available in Type J with 304 stainless steel sheaths,
or in Type K with Inconel 600 sheaths. The 1/8" diameter version is overmolded in the
ANSI color code and is available in 6", 9" and 12" lengths. The 2mm and 3mm diameter versions
are molded in the IEC color code and is available in 150, 200 and 250mm lengths.
The connector pin out is as shown in the accompanying figure. To maintain the proper polarity
and the use of thermocouple materials from the sensor to your measurement or control instrument,
we recommend one of Omega's M8 Thermocouple
Extension Cables (listed in the ordering table below).
Type J Thermocouples have a 304 SST sheath with a temperature range of -40 to 600°C,
with the connector overmolded in black nylon.
Type K Thermocouples have an Inconel 600 sheath with a temperature range of -40 to 1150°C,
with the connector overmolded in yellow nylon on the 1/8" diameter version, and green nylon on the 2mm and 3mm
Note: Molded connectors have a maximum temperature of 90°C.
Thermocouple output is per IEC 584-2, Class 2.
Fractional sizes are available with 1/8" diameter x 6", 9" or 12" long probes.
Metric sizes are available with 2mm or 3mm diameter x 150, 200 or 250mm long probes.
Insulation Resistance is 100 megohms at 100VDC for ungrounded sensors.
Minimum Bend Radius is three times the outer probe diameter.
Connect your M8 thermocouple probe to one of Omega's wide
variety of in-stock controllers, data loggers, hand held thermometers, PLCs or other measurement or process control products to complete
your measurement or control system.

Ordering Example: (1) M8MJSS-18-U-6 Type J thermocouple with 304 stainless steel sheath, 1/8'' diameter by 6'' long probe and molded M8 connector, CAD34.50 plus (1) M8MKIN-M3-U-200 Type K thermocouple with an Inconel 600 sheath, 3mm diameter by 200mm long probe and molded M8 connector, CAD35.50, CAD34.50 + 35.50 = CAD70.00
