Local temperature reading
The temperature is indicated at the place where it is measured.
The operation of such an instrument requires no external energy supply.
This is the bimetallic or gas-pressure thermometer (Filled System Thermometer).

Remote temperature reading
In this case, the information is sent to and indicated at a place other than that in which the measuring device is located.
In this case, thermoelectric sensors (thermocouples) requiring a 24V power supply are used.

Bimetal Vendors

Bimetallic thermometers (Bimetals) are most often seen in people’s pockets, clipped there with the dial indicator facing upwards. They have a sensing shaft about 3 or 4 mm in diameter made of stainless steel.

They are great for quick checks of temperature of a product or process, easy to clean and require no batteries.

But there are many other bimetals used in processes throughout the world usually unseen because they are inside another piece of equipment.

They are mostly found in thermostats, for example, in home and commercial heating/cooling systems. They are used as over temperature protection devices for most electrical equipment ranging from motors to transformers to small electrical appliances found in the home.

Think of it! They require no power, last almost forever, are very simple and cost little.
