Default PT100 Connection to panel suggestions?

I have a 3 wire PT100 Thermo sensor and i would like to be able easily disconnect my probe and wire from my Electric panel. I have seen Things like XLR connectors for music connections and was wondering if this was the best way to go or if anybody has any better suggestions.

All ideas welcome

With the XLR connector and braided cable.

I have the Auber connectors on my panel. Soldering those connections was a real pain.

I'd recommend using RJ-11 (standard telephone) or RJ-45 (standard ethernet) connectors and jacks. Crimp and go.

If you get the one I linked to I don't think you would have to do any soldering. I didn't anyway. If you do decide to use different connectors and wire just make sure you get the appropriate thermocouple wire for your sensor.

Just incase anyone is looking just for the cable. I havent had time to see if I can find them cheaper elsewhere. I have five already on hand that I need to solder, if they were just a touch cheaper, I would buy them already done (or if I need more).

If anyone finds them cheaper, please post!

See those pins on the end of the panel connector? Those aren't crimps. You have to solder on to them.

If they are crimps, I don't know of a crimper that works with them.

That picture is misleading, by the way. Tennessee is way longer than 1 1/8."

I soldered all of mine but it was a pain, especially cause all I have is a soldering gun with a fat tip.

Ahh, right on. Thanks for that. I just bought the XLR thing and hooked the stuff up. Was worried I missed something.
