Temperature Sensor

Surface

Temperature sensors have a well-defined relationship between electrical resistance and temperature, allowing them to measure temperature precisely. The sensor body is made of a thermally conductive material and is as small as possible to produce a rugged device which gives an accurate measurement of temperature with a fast response.

This sensor is small enough to install in traditional thermocouple locations, but has the advantage of straightforward Pt1000 interfacing.

Application

Temperature measurement.
