Type S thermocouple

Type S thermocouples are constructed using one wire of 90% Platinum and 10% Rhodium (the positive or "+" wire) and a second wire of 100% platinum (the negative or "-" wire). Like type R, type S thermocouples are used up to 1600C / 2912F. In particular, type S is used as the standard of calibration for the melting point of gold (1064.43C / 1947.98F).
