About the Replicator 2 / 2X Thermocouple
This is a replacement and upgrade for the factory Makerbot Replicator 2 and 2X stock thermocouple. Our thermocouple features the same brass hex connector for easy installation. Rigid heat shrink tubing protects the TC as it enters the hex connector.
Premium welded-tip thermocouples are encased in a protective fiberglass overbraid insulation good to 900°F. Ends are stripped (for connecting to terminal block) and overall length is 42" to 52" to ensure you won't be short (any excess during installation may be easily coiled up out of the way or cut off and re-stripped).
For the most economical replacement, choose our solid wire TCs. If you want the ultimate upgrade and want your TC to last over the most rigorous flex cycles, then our stranded wire TC is the way to go. Both utilize 24ga wire.
Each TC is tested and checked to ensure electrical isolation from the hex connector. Red lead is negative.
