Ceramic Tip RTD Temperature Sensors
Ceramic Tip RTD Temperature Sensors SKU:CRT_RTD
Description and Specs
Industrial Process and Sensor offers a range of RTD styles.
We offer a full range of RTDs made to order that can fulfill your every need.

Advantages of platinum resistance thermometers:

  • High accuracy
  • Low drift
  • Wide operating range
  • Suitable for precision applications

Our ceramic tip RTD gives you the option to construct your own RTD probes With cable lengths ranging from 10inches to 200 feet. Extra extension Cable availiable upon request
This element is a simple 3 wire RTD fit for any application
These can be used to measure ambiant temperature in rooms to use in RTD Assemblies.

Limitations:

  • RTDs in industrial applications are rarely used above 660 C. At temperatures above 660 C it becomes increasingly difficult to prevent the platinum from becoming contaminated by impurities from the metal sheath of the thermometer. This is why laboratory standard thermometers replace the metal sheath with a glass construction. At very low temperatures, say below -270 C (or 3 K), due to the fact that there are very few phonons, the resistance of an RTD is mainly determined by impurities and boundary scattering and thus basically independent of temperature. As a result, the sensitivity of the RTD is essentially zero and therefore not useful.
  • Compared to thermistors, platinum RTDs are less sensitive to small temperature changes and have a slower response time. However, thermistors have a smaller temperature range and stability.

Tolerance Class Valid Range
