  • Thermocouple and RTD Temperature Sensor Selection
    This is part 3 of a comprehensive three part series that provides information for choosing an industrial. temperature sensor from Thermocouple (T/C) and Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) sensor types.
  • Field Installation of Thermocouple & RTD Temperature Sensor Assemblies (.pdf)
    thermocouple and RTD sensor assemblies, along with some of the preparation that will ensure a successful operation.
  • Controller Thermocouple Location
    It has been our experience that best system controllability is obtained by placing the control sensor (element, T/C, RTD, Etc.) directly in front of the supply air discharge.
  • Fieldbus Part 2
    applications. A few instruments can illustrate this point. The first is the Rosemount 848T temperature transmitter, which also allows for other input types besides RTD and thermocouple. Steam-in-place (SIP) is a common process in biopharmaceutical facilities for sterilizing process vessels and piping
  • Interphex Stands Test of Time (and Economy)
    valves. Turck will be introducing its BL compact line, which brings all I/O to the plant floor in an environmentally hardened package that allows direct mounting onto a machine. The product line provides a vast signal variety, including analog, digital, RTD, thermocouple, serial or a mixture. UFP
  • Hot tips on IC temp sensors
    , resistive thermal detector (RTD), thermocouple, or other integrated sensing device makes the most sense. Key design criteria such as temperature accuracy, power consumption, and system cost affect the choice. Good decisions come from an understanding of how each device measures temperature along with its
  • Process temperature measurement practice--non-contacting
    Non-contacting temperature measurement techniques. for the processing industries complement thermocouple. and RTD sensors. Innovations in infrared technology. are reducing their cost and size while increasing reliability.
  • AN801 DSCA Calibration Procedure
    Using the module data sheet or module top label, determine the input and output ranges of the module. Connect a precision voltage source, current source, frequency source, RTD simulator, resistance or thermocouple simulator as appropriate to the input of the module. Set the input source
  • Accuracy Standards
    The industry standard for platinum RTD's according to IEC-751 is + /- 0.12% (of resistance) at 0°C, commonly referred to as Class B accuracy. This will provide an accuracy of + /- 0.3°C at 0°C, which is quite good if you compare it to the + /- 2.2°C of a standard Type J or K thermocouple.
  • Single Supply Temperature Sensing with Thermocouples
    There is a variety of temperature sensors on the market all of which meet specific application needs. The most common sensors used to solve these application problems include the thermocouple, Resistive Temperature Detector (RTD), Thermistor, and silicon based sensors. For an overview
