Simple Specials

Standard Product, Nonstandard Connections

Our OEM customer needed a fully compatible replacement for a thermocouple alarm module they once bought from England. Our Model JH1200 plug-in thermcouple alarm filled the bill, except the pin connections were different.

The answer was simple - take our standard product, unsolder the internal wires from the pins and rewire them to be the same as the British product. And, since the the connections to the thermocouple were changed, we also needed to relocate the temperature sensor used for cold junction compensation.

One more step - we made a simple adapter to allow the converted alarm module to plug into our standard production test and burn-in fixtures.

This customer buys only one or a few at a time, but they've become a regular for several years.
