Thermometrics Corporation Datasheets for Resistive Temperature Devices (RTD) Elements

Resistive temperature device (RTD) elements are wire windings or other thin-film serpentines that exhibit changes in resistance with changes in temperature. They are usually made of metallic elements or alloys such as copper, nickel, or nickel-iron.

Product Name Notes
Field Adjustable Sensors are ideal for applications involving various sheath lengths that are best determined on site, rather than on an engineering drawing.
For measuring high temperatures you should use a sensor, which reliably works in rough environments, has a long expectancy of life andideally comes up with the space-saving concepts of the...
In a three wire RTD one of the wires is connected to one side of the temperature element and the remaining two wires are connected to the other side of...
Platinum Thin Film RTD Elements are fabricated using state-of-the-art thin film processing techniques, resulting in an element of exceptional quality and stability.
PT100 sensors offer excellent accuracy over a wide temperature range (from -200 to +850 C).
Recognition of rising temperature can provide a warning of the breakdown of the bearing lubricating oil film; thus allowing machine shutdown and maintenance to take place. Prevention is always better...
Resistance thermometers,(RTDs), are temperature sensors that exploit the predictable change in electrical resistance of some materials with changing temperature.
Sanitary RTD sensors provide precise temperature measurements for Sanitary applications found in the Food, Dairy, Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industries.
The optimum form of connection for RTDs is a four-wire circuit. It removes the error caused by mismatched resistance of the lead wires.
The Pt1000 has 1000 ohms resistance at 0 C. These sensors are normally fitted into some type of protective sheath or mounting to form a probe.
Universal design allows for quick thermocouple or RTD installation into existing twist-lock adapters.
Using the 2-wire method, the two wires that provide the RTD with its excitation current and the two wires across which the RTD voltage is measured are the same.
Weld Pad RTD and Thermocouple sensors are commonly used in Petro-Chemical industries. These sensors are welded to pipe to provide a measurement of process temperature.
Wire wound elements are basically a "hand made" product which involves lot of skilled Labor. It is manufactured by placing a coil of thin wire into a ceramic insulator. The...
