RTD

Different types of Temperature Sensors used in industries

Introduction Electronic temperature sensors come in two basic varieties: resistance devices and voltage devices. A resistance device is one in which the resistance varies with temperature. Resistance devices can be further classified as a PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) device, or an NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) device. The resistance of a PTC increases with an increase …

WHAT IS RESISTANCE THERMOMETERS ?

Introduction Resistance thermometers is also called RTD (resistance temperature detector). It operates on the principle that, electrical resistance of a substance changes with temperature. The substance may be a semiconductor metal. The traditional sensing element of a resistance thermometer consists of a coil of small wire diameter to a precise resistance value. The most common …
