Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs)

rtdResistance Temperature Detectors, also known as RTDs and resistance thermometers, are temperature-sensing devices that change resistance at a predetermined rate in response to changes in temperature. They are circuit elements whose resistance increases with increasing temperature in a predictable manner. 

Pyrosales’ RTDs are specially designed to ensure precise and repeatable temperature versus resistance characteristics. The sensors are constructed in a unique strain-free manner and use only high quality RTD elements. Ceramic, wire-wound elements, or flat film technology elements are used as per customer’s requirements to ensure the most suitable specification is supplied.

The main advantages of our RTDs include: 

  • High accuracy/precise measurement 
  • High signal-to-noise output, which increases the accuracy of data transmission and permits greater distances between the sensor and the measuring equipment 
  • Physical and chemical stability over a wide temperature range 
  • Standardisation (elements are available to meet, or exceed, the requirements of various standardisation agencies) 
  • Wide temperature operating range 
  • High temperature operating range 
  • Linear over a wide operating range 
  • Interchangeability over a wide range 
  • Repeatability, even after long exposure to temperatures within the operating range
