Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) Sensors

Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD), a resistance thermometer; RTD is a sensor that can provide temperature measurement and utilize the relationship between electrical resistance and temperature. RTDs are accurate in it’s precision; however temperatures above 1292°F (700°C) lose accuracy as the outer sheath degrades…

Thermistor Controls

A thermistor is a type of resistor in where it’s resistance may vary with temperature, more significantly than a standard resistor. Thermistor is different than an RTD in where the material used for a thermistor is ceramic or polymer, while RTDs are pure…
