10-pin Detoronics® connector
The Detoronics connector is o-ring sealed to the temperature probe.
Note: This connector is mounted directly to the probe, meaning that no external cable can be selected with this option. It also eliminates the CF flange probe mount option.DT02H—flange mount connectors (MIL-STD-3112H type)

*Shield connection is only used in conjunction with external cable choices that include a braided shield (Cryocable™ and instrument cable)
Robust 4-lead cable best for wiring to instrument where both the wire and instrument are at room temperature. The 30 AWG signal wires make these wires easier to work with than traditional cryogenic wire.
Rated temperature: -20 °C to 80 °C
Thermal conductivity (300 K): 400 W/(m·K)
Resistance (300 K): 0.32 Ω/m
Supported sensor types: Cernox® RTD, silicon diode, GaAlAs diode, platinum RTD
Phosphor-bronze wire combinations that limit heat transfer into the temperature probe and are themselves rated for use in cryogenic environments.

*Also used for internal probe wiring. Ordering this cable will result in a continuous length of wire from the sensor through to the outside environment.
SS (stainless steel) coaxial cable
2-lead cabling solution that is extremely robust and limits heat transfer into the probe. Due to the 2-lead configuration, this cable is only compatible with diode sensors and will cause a predictable (potentially insignificant) offset in any temperature readings.
Resistance—center conductor at 295 K (22 °C): 23.62 Ω/m (7.2 Ω/ft)
Resistance—shield at 295 K (22 °C): 3.61 Ω/m (1.1 Ω/ft)
Insulation temperature range: 10 mK to 473 K
Supported sensor types: Silicon diode, GaAlAs diode
A robust, 4-wire cable for use in cryogenic environments to room temperature for the ultimate in thermal isolation from external heat sources. This cable is designed around 32 AWG (203 µm) diameter superconductive wires consisting of a
NbTi core (128 µm diameter) and a Cu-10% Ni jacket. The wire is LTS, requiring very low temperatures for it to become superconducting.
Minimum bend radius: 15 mm (0.6 in)
Superconducting critical temperature: 9.8 K
