Fieldpiece - The ATC2 K-type pipe clamp thermocouple is used to take temperatures of medium to large pipes or any other cylindrical surface within its 3/8" to 2 1/4" jaw range. Using a pipe clamp thermocouple greatly facilitates taking superheat or sub cooling measurements. Use the ATC2 for most A/C units. The ATC2 can be used with any of our meters that measure temperature and any thermometer accepting a K-type thermocouple.
Because the jaw is designed for HVAC/R, its clamping ability lets you measure temperatures of pipes that are fixed, at any angle, to walls or other surfaces. The sensor reaches correct temperature within a minute.
