Thermocouples consist of two dissimilar metal wires joined at a hot junction; as temperature changes, a millivolt signal is generated. The most common alloy combinations are known as type J and type K thermocouples (ANSI/IEC code). Advantages of thermocouple sensors include low cost, small size, wide temperature ranges and faster response (than RTDs).
