When selecting a temperature sensor, please take seven key considerations in mind for selecting the best position sensor for your application 1. Measuring Method: PT100, PT1000 etc 2. Temperature Range 3. Accuracy 4. Mechanical Connection 5. Probe Length 6. Probe Diameter 7. Output Signal
How accurate is a RTD sensor (Pt100) classes A, B In China's national standard, PT100 has two accuracy classes: Class A and class B Measuring Range：-200℃～+850℃Class A accuracy（0.15+0.002*|t|）℃；Class B accuracy（0.30+0.005*|t|）℃； Note: |t| is the absolute value of actual temperature.
A temperature transmitter is a device that connects to a temperature sensor to transmit the signal elsewhere for monitoring and control purposes. Typically, the temperature sensor is either an RTD(PT100 or PT1000), thermistor or thermocouple type sensor and will interface with a PLC, DCS, data logger or display hardware. The temperature transmitter's role is to isolate the temperature signal, filter any EMC noise, amplify and convert the temperature sensor's signal to a 4-20mA or 0-10V DC range for further use.
PT100 Temperature Sensor (RTD)Pt100 is a sensor used to measure temperature. It is one type of sensor which falls into a group called Resistance Temperature Detectors or RTD’s.
RTD Resistance temperature sensor is usually made from high purity platinum metal. Their resistance has a direct and repeatable relationship with temperature. RTD platinum temperature sensor has long term stability and strict tolerances over a wide temperature range. They are widely used in various electronic instruments, household appliance, HVAC, energy power industry and mechanical control.
