Resistance temperature sensors | Choosing the right temperature sensor
A resistance temperature sensor, often called an RTD, is a contact sensor. It uses the variation of the resistance of a metal (platinum, copper, nickel or tungsten) according to the temperature. This type of sensor uses several metals that offer different measuring ranges: Platinum: -200°C to 600°C Copper: -190°C to 150°C Nickel: -60°C to 180°C Tungsten: -100°C to 1,400°C The most commonly used metal for resistance temperature sensors is platinum...

How to choose this product
resistance-temperature-sensor

A resistive temperature detector (RTD) converts the measured physical value of temperature into an electrical output signal. Its operation is based on the known change in electrical resistance of a given material as a function of temperature variation. The RTD element is made of a pure material, often platinum.

Applications

These devices are employed where very precise temperature measurement is required.

Technologies

A small current is applied to the metal conductor. Rising temperature hinders the flow of electrons within, increasing resistance. This relationship is referred to as the temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR).

Most RTD elements are made of platinum, and are capable of measurements from -200° to +850° C. Less expensive nickel is sometimes used, but is only effective between -60° and +350° C. Pt 100 detectors have a resistance of 100 at 0° C, while Pt1000 models have a resistance of 1000 at the same temperature.

How to choose

Choice will depend on detector configuration, whether for surface mounting or immersion. Other factors include the operating environment, the measurement medium and the required temperature range.
