Thread: Interchangable Thermocouples?

  1. #1

    Interchangable Thermocouples?

    I bought an RV-7 which was mostly built, engine and thermocouples. The original builder was planning on using Brand X (Dynon) and I have an AFS-4500s EE.

    There are only two types of thermocouples, won't the AFS work with either type?

    I hate the thought of having to spend hundreds of dollars and the hassle of changing these things.

    Please Help.

    We need ungrounded probes, Type K for EGT and Type J for CHT

    Thanks,
    I think that is what I have, will double check.

    Just to verify, I'm removing a Insight-GEM 602 engine monitor and replacing with AFS 4500. GEM says they use Type "K for EGT and type "J" for CHT. The thermocouple will be compatible, correct?
