IMPROVING HUMIDITY MEASUREMENTS IN METEOROLOGY

A product with a unique advantage Air humidity and temperature play an important role in meteorology. Highly accurate measurements of these climate parameters form the basis of accurate forecasts and meaningful records. The E+E Elektronik Model EE33 series humidity and temperature sensor is the only one on the market with a double-heated probe. Both the sensor tube and the sensor element are heated. An application note, free for download from their website, tells the rest of the story. You can download it be clicking here. If that does not work, as sometimes happens when organizations “refine” their websites, we have … Continue reading

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

Using a 3-Wire RTD to Reduce Temperature Measurement Errors

Ensure High Accuracy in Your Critical Temperature Measurements CHESTERLAND OH, USA — To prevent inaccurate temperature measurements which can potentially cause disastrous inventory losses, CAS DataLoggers recommends using 3-wire RTDs to customers taking temperature measurements using RTD sensors. These sensors are affordable and easily available for use with our wide inventory of temperature dataloggers, but some users are unaware of this more accurate option. With this in mind, Applications Specialists have put together this brief guide to show the need for 3-wire RTDs. RTD sensors make simple resistance measurements, usually at about 100 ohms, which is a relatively low level … Continue reading
