Temperature measuring range
Whether installed, uninstalled, wired or unwired - there are a wide variety of sensors such as platinum sensors with Pt100, Pt200, Pt500 or Pt1000 sensor element. Another digital sensor is the DS18B20 digital thermometer. It has a direct digital output and is programmable.
The sheath thermocouple, also called MTE, consists of two conductors made of thermocouple material. These are enclosed in magnesium oxide and a stainless steel sheath. The conductors are connected to each other at the measuring point. Due to their flexibility and slim design, they can reach even difficult measuring points. MTE's can have uninsulated, insulated and exposed measuring points depending on the application. Thermocouple type K is the most common thermocouple type.
Platinum temperature sensors
These platinum temperature sensors feature long-term stability, high accuracy over a wide temperature range, and continuous compatibility. They are particularly used for high demand applications, typically in automotive, white goods, air conditioning and heating, power generation, and medical and industrial equipment and machinery.
PTC temperature sensors
Silicon temperature sensors (also known as KTY temperature sensors or PTC temperature sensors) are ideal for temperature measurement and control, especially for measuring in air, gas and liquids.
Digital temperature sensors
Even more accurate than platinum temperature sensors are digital temperature sensors. With their digital output, temperature measurement is very easy. The TSic™ sensors offer outstanding accuracy and high long-term stability.
NTC temperature sensors
NTC sensors are also suitable for a wide range of applications, such as in heating technology or in the automotive sector.
For special miniaturized solutions in temperature measurement, the precision temperature sensors have been designed with 1 kOhm, 2 kOhm, 5 kOhm, 10 kOhm, 20 kOhm, 25 kOhm, 50 kOhm, 100 kOhm and 200 kOhm resistors.
