What is a Thermocouple?

What is a Thermocouple? So, what exactly is a thermocouple? It is two wires of dissimilar metals that produce a thermoelectric voltage when the two ends are at different temperatures. There are three “families” of materials from which thermocouples are made. (See Charts Below) Some History on Thermocouples In the 1820’s Thomas Seebeck experimented with…
