This sensor uses type-K thermocouple wire to measure temperatures over the range of -200 to 1400C. It can be used to measure flame temperatures as high as 1400C, or liquid nitrogen temperatures at -196C.
The Thermocouple has an internal ice-point compensation chip, so you do not need to place a reference wire in an ice-water bath. You can simply use one measuring lead to take temperature readings.
Each Thermocouple is individually calibrated.
