Principle of Operation of a Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD)

“An RTD (resistance temperature detector) is a temperature sensor that operates on the measurement principle that a material’s electrical resistance changes with temperature. “The relationship between an RTD’s resistance and the surrounding temperature is highly predictable, allowing for accurate and consistent temperature measurement. By supplying an RTD with a constant current and measuring the resulting…

Temperature Sensors Explained

“The height of the column is divided up and marked to correlate it with known temperatures, for example: at water boils 100°C (212°F), and it freezes as 0°C (32°F). As the liquids volume expands and contracts, we can easily read the temperature. “This method is easy for humans to use but it’s slow, it’s not…

Taking Temperature Measurements with RTDs: How-To Guide

New to RTDs? Consider this. According to Knowledge.Ni.Com: RTD Overview “A platinum resistance temperature detector (RTD) is a device with a typical resistance of 100 Ω at 0 °C. It consists of a thin film of platinum on a plastic film. Its resistance varies with temperature and it can typically measure temperatures up to 850…
