AutoQuiz: Standard Wiring Color for Type K Thermocouple

The post AutoQuiz: Standard Wiring Color for Type K Thermocouple first appeared on the ISA Interchange blog site.

AutoQuiz is edited by Joel Don, ISA’s community manager. 

 

Today’s automation industry quiz question comes from the ISA Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST) program. Certified Control System Technicians calibrate, document, troubleshoot, and repair/replace instrumentation for systems that measure and control level, temperature, pressure, flow, and other process variables.
