Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs)

Examples of various types of temperature sensor devices as provided by RAM Sensors, Inc

RTDs (Resistance Temperature Detectors) are used in the food, dairy, and textile industries. These devices are useful in applications where accuracy and stability are required over a wide temperature range. RTDs can provide a stable reading over a long linear temperature curve with a high level of accuracy (as long as they are not exposed to moisture or vibration). You can choose between different types of metals to get the temperature curve you need for your particular application.

RTDs are made in two main configuration: wire wound and thin film. While wire wound configurations have had a reputation of being the most accurate, recent advancements in technology have made it possible to develop thin film configurations with higher accuracy. RAM Sensors offers a wide range of RTDs for various applications.
