The ASTM C 1114-98 Standard Test Method for thin heater apparatuses (THA) can perform fast and accurate measurements across a large temperature range. The THA01 was designed improve the contact resistance-sensitive outputs from this standard.
It is considered as a thin thermocouple thermopile which can perform an accurate and ultra-sensitive differential ΔT measurement. The instrument can handle samples of 0.01 to 6 mm thickness. Samples are usually sheet materials with a size of 70 by 100 mm.
