Pt100 sensor, RTD and platinum sensor

Platinum RTD’s, allow for accurate sensing at very high and very low temperatures from -200°C up to
+ 850°C. Platinum temperature sensor elements are used in temperature probes, in measuring instruments and systems and also in electronic equipment.

The available types of RTD sensors

Stator slot sensor

  • Stator slot style Pt100 sensors in a length of 100mm up to 500 mm are commonly used.
  • Available resistances of Pt1000, Pt500 and Pt200
  • Common diameters are between 8-12mm
  • Available with silver, nickel or tin plated copper lead wires in a variety of AWG sizes.
  • Certified “intrinsically safe” and “increased safety” models for hazardous, explosive environments.

Thin film sensors

  • Are the most broad spectrum, economical platinum RTD sensor
  • Thin films are the flattest temperature sensor, give a fast response time and are durable and have a high vibration resistance
  • Available in resistance values: Pt50, Pt100, Pt200, Pt500, Pt 1000
  • Often chosen in high vibration applications such as aerospace and automotive industries

Sensors for high and very low temperatures from -200°C up to + 850°C.

SMD platinum sensors

  • SMS’d are specifically designed to fit on PCBs (printed circuit boards)
  • Form the active measurement element on a PCB
  • Are mainly used in electronics industry or the semi-conductor industry

Ceramic wire wound sensors

  • Are suitable for the thinnest RTD mineral insulated cables
  • Ceramic wire wounds operate at a wide temperature range (up to 850 °C) and have a high level of resistance to thermal shock
  • Available in resistance values of Pt100 and Pt50
  • Often used in industries such as chemical and power generation

Cryogenic platinum cobalt resistance sensor

The cryogenic platinum Cobalt resistance sensor, is a type of RTD sensor for extremely low temperatures. Key highlights include:


Benefits of platinum RTD sensors

High temperature capability, excellent chemical resistance, biological inertness and long-term electrical stability make platinum a natural choice as the base material for temperature measurement resistance elements.

Due to the special properties of platinum, Pt measurement resistors with 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 ohm provide a range of advantages compared to competing sensors such as semiconductor sensors (KTY®) or thermistors (NTC). Such as;
