The AKCP Thermocouple adaptor is specially designed for connecting any K-type thermocouple sensor to the securityProbe or securityProbe 5E base units.

When a K-type thermocouple sensor is plugged into the adapter and the RJ-45 LAN cable is connected to the Intelligent Sensor port on either the base unit or the E-sensor8 expansion module, the base unit will auto detect the sensor. A built-in graph option is included on all securityProbes for graphing temperature variations over a period of time.
