Temperature Sensor Uses, Measurements or Applications
MEASUREMENTS ARE WHERE TEMPERATURE SENSORS MEET THE “REAL WORLD”! WHERE THE RESULTS PROVE THAT ONE UNDERSTANDS THEIR PROPERTIES AND HAS SELECTED A SENSOR WELL ENOUGH TO DO THE JOB WITHIN THE DESIRED MEASUREMENT UNCERTAINTY!
Many people have trod these paths before you and there is a wealth of information on successful use of temperature sensors under a great many different conditions and contexts.
Cataloging proven uses of temperature sensors or temperature measurements (called applications by most vendors) can help in two ways.
First, it saves one from “reinventing the wheel” all over again.
Second, it can make a new measurement problem easier to solve if it is analogous to a proven one, with perhaps only a change to one or two of the influencing conditions.
This section of the site is where the real fun begins for anyone trying to make a serious temperature or dewpoint measurement. Our object is to catalog web sources of information of such measurement successes.
The use of a structured approach to measurements helps even more but will have to wait until a little later. There are courses which teach such things, for instance, ISA Training, and others, but not for free.
The Temperature & Moisture Sensor Directories website, www.TempSensor.net has a feature enabling all interested individuals to enter reviews of products and services as well as successes in measurements.
We have been gathering this information over time and provide it, with appropriate acknowledgments, for all to access freely, in the spirit of Internet sharing.
In addition to links to applications and technology references, the directories website also has a self-service facility for manufacturers to add their own corporate listing as well as details of new product and personnel news.
User inputs are reviewed for appropriateness and over zealousness.

- CRYOGENICS AND CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE SENSORS USES
- DEWPOINT TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY IN GASES
- ENVIRONMENT TEMPERATURES & WEATHER
Environment Temperature is another significant application of temperature sensors. The page also features links on Weather.
- Food Temperatures, Food Temperature Sensors and Food Safety
A page inspired by the extensive use of a wide range of different types of temperature sensors in the measurement of food temperature in many aspects of cooking, not the least of which is in assuring that various food types are cooked sufficiently to kill any dangerous organisms that may be in them.
- HVACThe use of temperature and humidity sensors and other measurement devices to control the environment in which people live and work and in which, too, some products are processed. This is a widespread activity involving huge companies as well as small ones in providing equipment, training, design and services to many individual and corporate customers.
