    The type k's have the 2 flat blades on the plug, Cooper's thermister style has a headphone plug on the end.

    They do make both types.

    Good to know. Im torn between a new 52 and a cooper. Although through all this I have deduced that they type K adapters are garbage and even my dusty old UEI ( which I only bought because I liked the hook ammeter- thought it was slick) gives accurate readings with the same bead probes vs same probes on fluke with adapter

    If price is an issue and you already have a bunch of k-type sensors, you might look at a fieldpiece ST-4. From what I can see its the same thing as the fluke 52. Ive had good luck with the fieldpiece single function tools. I don't own this one though.

    Calibrating temperature on fluke VOMs with temp

    Naturally cost like anyone else is a factor but I invest in quality as in the long run an error because I dont trust or have faulty stuff costs me more in the long run. I always stand by my personal workmanship and if its screwed up Im out time and money so it is what it is
