Temperature Probes

temperature probes

Selection of probes based on Pt100/Pt1000, thermistors or thermocouples

Platinum Temperature Sensor (Pt100/Pt1000)
Platinum measuring resistors incorporate a Pt100 or Pt1000 sensor with 1/3 DIN accuracy. They are available in two-wire and also four-wire technique when power resistance needs to be compensated for. Platinum sensors can operate within the range of -50°C...+400°C while still maintaining high accuracy and long-term stability.

Thermocouples
Thermocouples are suitable for a broad temperature range between -25°C and +1100°C. They feature a fast response time and can be used for applications in hard to reach spaces or for rough, industrial applications.

Thermistors
Thermistors are sensors based on metal oxide semiconductors which produce a much larger change in signal when temperatur changes occur. Their operating range is -50°C...+150°C. They come in miniaturized design, helping their fast response time. Due to the thermistor's high resistance the effect of power resistance is reduced and probes with longer cables can be used without creating significant error sources.
Small thermistors (Type S and SU) are particularly suitable for miniaturized probes in steel pipes or tubings.

Cables
Which cable you need to use depends on the chosen probe, sensor model and application conditions.

Connectors

The probes can be fitted with different connectors. Stereo jack, LEMO connectors or miniaturized ISA connectors are available. Customer-specific connector types can be fitted on request.
