All About Temperature Sensors

The term temperature sensor refers to a class of devices that provide a measurement of the temperature of objects, and either display a reading directly or produce an output signal whose value can be translated into a temperature reading. Temperature is a fundamental measurement of thermal energy and can be thought of as a measure…

Choosing Temperature Sensors for HVAC and Chiller Equipment – A Variety of Sensors Designs Offer Options and Trade-offs in Performance and Reliability.

Highlighting that efficient operation of industrial HVAC and chiller equipment depends upon optimum temperatures of refrigerant and lubricating oil, this paper states that negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors of various resistance values are the most common sensors used for efficient operation. It presents durability, and quick response to temperature change as the advantages of thermistor,…

THE BEST WAY TO TEST SOIL TEMPERATURE IN 4 STEPS

Greenhouse offers a controlled environment for growing plants. So a grower can check temperature, humidity or air circulation at any time and adjust as necessary. There are 7 types of greenhouse sensors you can use to do so. Although primarily you should be monitoring greenhouse temperature and humidity with thermometer and hygrometer, it is very…

Soil Moisture Sensors in Agriculture

Any farmer will tell you that the conditions of the soil change constantly throughout the growing season. The soil conditions are influenced by the weather, row density, crop patterns, and more. During this period, the plants are continuously changing and adapting to the environment. The plant’s roots and shoots grow in soil most advantageous to…

Automated Temp Monitoring is Good Business

American households spend hundreds of dollars each month purchasing fresh, frozen, and prepared foods from grocery stores, supermarkets, and other specialty food stores. From start to finish, food goes through many steps before it is sold to customers. Depending on whether it is hot or cold, there are even more steps during the preparation process.…

RTD Sensors

New to RTD sensors? Consider this. According to IQS Directory: Chapter One What is a RTD Sensor? An RTD, resistance temperature detector, is a passive temperature sensing device that operates on the principle that the resistance of a metal changes as the temperature changes. The electrical current that passes through the element or resistor of…
