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:

Developed through TI’s expertise in MEMS technology, the TMP006 is the first of a new class of ultra-small, low power, and low cost passive infrared temperature sensors. It has 90% lower power consumption and is more than 95% smaller than existing solutions, making contactless temperature measurement possible in completely new markets and applications.

Check out their Video Channel on YouTube, especially the long list of videos already published about “Temperature Measurement”. It very straightforward; just go to: https://www.youtube.com/user/texasinstruments/search?query=%22temperature+measurement%22

RTD Vendors

RTDs (Resistance Temperature Detectors)  are wire wound and thin film devices that depend on the temperature coefficient of electrical resistance of metals. As the temperature increases, the positive temperature coefficient of the metal produces an increasing resistance value.

You can read more about them and how they work on the companion RTD pages.

Some metals have a nearly ideal, linear coefficient, like platinum . While other materials have more non-linear coefficients, such a copper and nickel.

This page provides links to some of the vendors of these devices.

You may note some redundancy with links on related pages. A good part of that is due to the fact that some vendors supply more than one type of sensor, plus many provide technical, applications and related support to customers and prospective ones.

Reading vendors literature can be a great, but unstructured way, to gain some technical knowledge. The only danger is that it is hard to learn more than the vendor puts in their literature or what their salesperson knows.

That approach can be quite variable but certainly does not make it easy for you to evaluate products without benchmarks.

Some advice (non-definitive): check with more than one vendor and get some education about these sensors from other sources, too.

There are books and courses available. Check your local library’s technical section or a engineering or science library at a university or technical college or school or the ISA or someone on the ASTM E20 Committee on Temperature Measurement.

ASTM E20 has a special subcommittee devoted to just RTDs. You can find more about their RTD standards on the RTD Standards Page of this site.

Thanks for visiting.
