Thermocouple compensation wire

Compensation wires are wires that have the same thermoelectric electromotive force value as the matched thermocouple within a certain temperature range (including room temperature).

Compensation wires are wires that have the same thermoelectric electromotive force value as the matched thermocouple within a certain temperature range (including room temperature). They are used to connect the thermocouple to the measuring device to compensate for the errors caused by temperature changes at their connection with the thermocouple. Compensation wires are divided into two types: extension type and compensation type.
