Using RTDs for Measuring Temperature

Much industrial automation, medical equipment, instrumentation, and other applications require temperature measurement for monitoring environmental conditions, correcting system drift, or achieving high precision and accuracy. Many temperature sensors are available for use like electronic bandgap sensors, thermistors, thermocouples, and resistance temperature detectors or RTDs. The selection of the temperature sensor depends on the temperature range to be measured and the accuracy desired. The Read more [...]

Connecting Wireless Temperature Controllers

Modern industrial temperature controllers are not just simple thermostats, as their earlier counterparts were. With the ability to control upwards of a hundred parameters, the latest industrial temperature controllers allow users to set not only temperature points, but also program alarm settings based on adjustable ramp parameters. Users can select the RTD or thermocouple they want to use for collecting data, while setting limits on the set points.
With the advent of digital temperature controllers, Read more [...]
