Neuron Thermocouple Type K

The Neuron Thermocouple measures a very wide range of temperature based on a type K thermocouple probe. The sensor has a standard IEC miniature connector for easy connection to any type K probe.

It is designed for industrial temperature measurements with a rugged casing and wide temperature range from -250°C to 1350°C depending on choice of type K thermocouple probe.

Experience how easy it is to get started and the huge benefits of our simple and practical IoT solutions.

General Description

Thermocouples enable measurement of very high and low temperatures, yielding wider range than comparable PT100 elements. The Neuron Thermocouple matched with a Type K temperature probe combines the power and versatility of the Neuron system with a high performing temperature probe to deliver accurate and flexible temperature data through the Neuron system.

The Neuron Thermocouple is equipped with a standard IEC miniature connector for easy connection to any type K probe.


Principle of Operation

The thermocouple drives a small gradient voltage caused by dissimilar metals joining at the thermocouple’s tip. By measuring this voltage with respect to the reference ambient temperature at the connector, the thermocouple tip temperature can be inferred.



  • Integrated long life battery – up to 10 years lifetime
  • Continuous measurement and instant alarm
  • Adjustment of parameters such as measurement frequency on request
  • Define your own alarm levels in the Neuron app
  • Receive alerts as push notifications, emails or SMS
  • Easily connect the sensor to the system with the QR- code on the sensor. Ensures immediate and accurate registration in the app on your phone/PC/tablet
  • The sensor transmits data to your nearby Neuron Gateway which then again communicates with the Neuron Cloud

Neuron sensors are ready for use out of the box and will start logging data after registering the sensor in the app. Even though Neuron sensors deliver great range and long battery life, following some simple guidelines for mounting of the sensor and gateway can greatly improve signal coverage and lifetime of the sensor.

To ensure optimal antenna performance and signal strength, the sensor should be placed elevated with some distance to fixed objects. Keep in mind that RF-signals are greatly affected by close metallic surfaces.

For sensors with an external antenna, the antenna should be clear off the metallic surface.

For sensors operating in environments with greatly varying temperatures, care should be taken to avoid putting the sensor in unnecessary stress. Very high or low temperatures will affect the battery life and the signal strength of the sensor. While some sensors must be close to the source of heat or cold, other sensors have external probes which allow the sensor to be placed at a distance.

The small, compact blue Neuron sensors are fitted with fastening holes for use with cable ties. The sensors are also delivered with double-sided tape that may be used for fastening of the sensors.

All the black/grey Neuron sensors, like the Neuron Thermocouple and Neuron Vibration, are fitted with a strong magnet at the back for easy fastening. If there is no magnetic surface, then double-sided tape is a good solution.

The neuron system has more than 50 different robust sensors that can be installed in minutes.
