Product Name Notes
RTD’s are stable and have a fairly wide temperature range, but are not as rugged and inexpensive as thermocouples. Since they require the use of electric current to make measurements,...
Thermistors tend to be more accurate than RTD’s and thermocouples, but they have a much more limited temperature range because of their marked non-linearity. A Thermistor capitalizes on the fact...
Thermocouples are two wires of dissimilar metals, joined at one end. Changes in the temperature at the "hot junction" (measuring end) induce a change in electromotive force (emf) at the...
