Resistance thermometers

Resistance thermometers with Pt100/Pt1000 resistor

Resistance thermometers are equipped with platinum sensor elements which change their electrical resistance as a function of temperature. In our range of products you will find versions with connected cables as well as versions with connection heads. A temperature transmitter can be installed directly in the connection head. Furthermore, in the WIKA product portfolio, in addition to threaded resistance thermometers, flanged resistance thermometers or process resistance thermometers, you will also find the right measuring insert for your application.

How does a resistance thermometer work?

The electrical resistance of a resistance thermometer's sensor changes with the temperature. As the resistance of measuring resistors to EN 60751 (2009-05) increases with rising temperature, we refer to it as PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient ...
