of Temperature Sensors
Here's where you can find the list of
sensor typesalong with a brief description of each and its special features.
If you know your type, use the links on this page to get to it or the list of
vendors who provide them. This may be a surprise
to some engineers who have come to believe there is only one supplier of temperature
Selecting a Temperature Sensor TC
+ RTD Tables
Sometimes easy, sometimes not so easy... but always worth doing with care.
, If your sensor is a thermocouple or Resistance Temperature
Detector (RTD) these tables could be useful, thanks to Pyromation , Inc.
If a non-contact sensor is your choice and you don't
know beans about emissivity, you are not alone! take the E-Trail to a better understanding
of this often maligned optical property of matter, e-missivity, that is! It is
crucial to many non-contact temperature measurements. Includes a list of special
technical reference materials (not on the web but at your local technical
university or big city library).
Among one of the major resources is the community of workers and researchers actively
engaged in developing standards, new methods and/or teaching others. As an entity,
the community of temperature workers is loosely defined and widely spread around
the world, but they exist. We've provided some pages with connections to this
vast resource and expect to see it grow over time. In fact, the key elements to
a start in this effort are combined on another page entitled "Community. Some
of the key page links on this site that make up that page are the following: Links,
Meetings, References, Archives.
