TI Temperature Measurement Videos

TI, or Texas Instruments, is one of the world’s most prolific and largest makers of temperature sensors. They make all kinds but their sensors are mostly in the form of Integrated Circuit semiconductors. TI also does an exceptional job in educating users how their devices work and how they can be interfaced and incorporated in measurement systems. Especially useful are the videos showing how some of their other integrated circuit modules can be used with external temperature sensors, like Thermocouples, RTDs and Thermistors. Here’s an example of an interesting one: Contactless Temperature Measurement Made Simple – TMP006 by Texas Instruments … Continue reading

New ASTM Standard For Digital Thermometers

ASTM E2877, Guide for Digital Contact Thermometers W. Conshohocken PA, USA — A new ASTM International standard provides a variety of recommendations for the manufacture and selection of digital thermometers. ASTM E2877, Guide for Digital Contact Thermometers, was developed by Subcommittee E20.09 on Digital Contact Thermometers, part of ASTM International Committee E20 on Temperature Measurement. Included in ASTM E2877 is a set of accuracy classes for digital thermometers. These classes pertain to the temperature interval from -200 °C through 500 °C, an interval important for many thermometry applications. In order to qualify for a specific accuracy class, a thermometer must … Continue reading
