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.


How high is the permissible vibration loading for WIKA-Pt100 probes?

The standard WIKA measuring insert allows use up to 3g (amplitude). This corresponds to a loading of 6g, peak to peak, per DIN EN 60751 (58.86 m/s^2). In EN 60751 only 20-30 m/s^2 peak-to-peak is specified (1 g = 9.81 m/s^2). The vibration-resistan ...
