Rubbing, Contact or Embedded Thermocouples

For measuring and/or monitoring high tempertures on braking systems.


Tim King T/A TKSensors, designs and manufactures rubbing or contact thermocouples for high temperature braking systems typically used in the motor sport industries as well as road vehicle testing, railways and aircraft.

Tim is the sole designer and manufacturer of the high temperature, tip sensitive, type K surface rubbing or contact thermocouple assemblies HTAxxxx.

I have been directly involved in the design, manufacturing and marketing of thermocouple and RTD assemblies and their applications since 1996 and been responsible for many new products across a variety of engineering industries in the global market.
