This connection box is perfect for areas where a spot check is necessary on a test point with difficult or impaired access.
Designed with a blue front cover for coldwater test points
The box measures 52 x 52 x 23mm
The TCWALLPORTR is primarily designed for use with a fine wire thermocouple temperature sensor which is attached to the temperature test point and left in-situ.
The wire is then run to the port which can be sited in a convenient position up to 20 metres away. Temperature is read by simply plugging a hand-held thermometer into the port (KMPC connection cable required).
Can be used with:
T or K Thermocouple Probes such as:
• Fine Wire Probes
• Velcro Probes
• Rubber Patch Probes
• Immersion Probes

Hard to reach? Legionella experts launch new solution to problem temperature points
Facilities and premises managers faced with the problem of monitoring hard to reach water temperature points now have the ideal solution thanks to a handy new device from TM Electronics, market leaders in temperature measurement for legionella risk management.
Who Cares About Temperature?
Care service managers faced with a growing raft of health and safety legislation may be overlooking the issue of temperature safety, warns thermometer manufacturer, TM Electronics, raising the profile of correct temperature management in care homes and assisted-living accommodation.
Spotlight on Temperature – Advice for Care Homes
Concerns about temperature safety are a hot topic of conversation for nursing and care home managers, as increased due diligence on health and safety regulations puts temperature increasingly under the spotlight. Clinical thermometers are well-understood and easy to source but are just the tip of the iceberg.
Help For Schools With In-House Legionella Tests
UK thermometer manufacturer, TM Electronics, is seeing increased sales of DIY legionella testing kits to schools carrying out in-house water temperature testing to reduce the risk of Legionnaires’ disease.
What is the purpose of the Red and Blue colour options for the TC Wall Port?
Engineers often need to monitor both hot and cold pipes at the same location. The Red and Blue ports make it easy to tell which is hot and which is cold.
Can I use any thermometer with the TC Wall Port?
You will need a digital thermocouple thermometer with mini-plug input socket in order to read temperatures from your wall ports. We recommend our MM2008 Legionella Thermometer. You will also need a KMPC cable (such as the KMPC2MP) to connect your thermometer to the Wall Port .Thermistor and PT100 thermometers are not compatible with this product
How do I work out what I need?
First count up the number of test points you wish to monitor. Next decide where you wish to site each Wall Port to conveniently measure each temperature point from. Finally calculate the length of fine wire temperature sensor required for each Wall Port. These are available in lengths of one,three,five,ten and twenty metres.
Does the TC Wall Port system replace conventional temperature monitoring?
The TC Wall Port system happily works alongside conventional temperature monitoring using handheld immersion and surface probes. Its main advantage lies in simplifying temperature monitoring of points which are boxed-in or are difficult to access. If you have any doubts regarding the implementation of a water temperature monitoring regime in your building, you should consult your risk assessment and adhere to any recommendations contained therein.
Can I use a TC Wall Port to measure temperature of water in a CWST?
Can I use TC Wall Ports to measure flow and return pipe temperatures on calorifiers?
Yes. Simply attach a fine wire sensor to each pipe and connect each one to a Wall Port sited in a convenient position. We recommend using high-temperature duct tape to fix the sensors to the pipes.
What is the TC Wall Port?
The TC Wall Port is a wall-mounted temperature monitoring point, connected to a fine wire thermocouple temperature sensor. The tip of the sensor is permanently installed on the surface of the item you wish to take the temperature of, such as a water pipe or TMV inlet. Simply plug your thermometer into the port with a connector cable for an instant temperature reading. The port can be sited up to twenty metres from the test point making it ideal for use with boxed-in pipes and valves or pipes and water tanks located at height or in areas where access is difficult.
