The male connectors are the fittings attached to the ends of wires (heat penetration cable) which plug into the thermocouples. They are available in non-locking (C-6) and locking (C-10). The locking type should be used when agitation or stress might cause the connector to become disconnected from the thermocouple. The locking connector incorporates a threaded ring that screws onto the external thread on the locking receptacle (C-9) securing the connection during processing.
The counterparts for the male connectors described above are the female fittings designated as C-7 for non-locking and the C-7.1 for the locking. They may be used with the male connectors to make a quick disconnect.
These connectors are characterized by a flat blade and are the standard connector for most of the instrumentation available. They are used to connect leads to the Ecklund ESRA (slip ring assembly) and are compatible with many data loggers.
