Overview

Mineral insulated cables have an outer sheath of metal with 2 to 8 inner conductors. The insulation material is made from a highly compressed metal-oxide powder (preferably MgO or Al2O3).
Mineral insulated thermocouple cables have inner conductors of thermocouple base material. Mineral insulated cables for RTDs have inner conductors of copper, copper-nickel alloys, nickel, nickel-chromium or nickel-plated copper.
Mineral insulated cables are designed for high-temperature applications and are used wherever there are particularly strict requirements with regard to mechanical, chemical and electrical stability.
