Resistance thermometers

Resistance thermometers with Pt100/Pt1000 resistance

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 resistance thermometers with connected cable as well as versions with connection head. A temperature transmitter can be installed directly in the connection head. Resistance thermometers are suitable for applications between -200 ... +600 °C (-328 °F … 1,112 °F) (dependent on instrument model, sensor element, accuracy class and materials coming into contact with the medium). Accuracy classes AA, A and B apply to all resistance thermometers. They are available with a tolerance value to IEC 60751.

FAQ

Can electrical thermometers be calibrated?

It is not possible to calibrate resistance thermometers (e.g. measuring inserts).
Since electrical thermometers are normally connected to a measuring instrument or evaluation unit, it is only possible to calibrate the entire measuring chain.
