An RTD sensor (Resistance Temperature Detector) is a platinum resistance thermometer, also known as an platinum sensor or PT100 sensor. These sensors have been designed to meet the challenge of accurate temperature. Our range of Pt100 sensors, as well as other platinum RTD’s, allow for accurate sensing at very high and very low temperatures from -200°C up to + 850°C.
PT100 RTD elements measure temperature by the change in resistance values of the platinum wires during heating or cooling. The relationship between resistance and temperature is relatively linear, consistent and measurable and this is what allows for a high degree of accuracy within the chosen temperature range. The popular Pt100 sensor has a resistance of 100 Ohms at 0 °C and Kamet also offers RTD’s with other resistance values: Pt50, Pt200, Pt500, Pt 1000 where the name indicates the resistance value (ohms) at 0 °C
Kamet is the official reseller of Pt100 thin film sensors from Heraeus Nexensos, the world leading company in thin film technology.
Kamet offers a range in design of platinum resistance thermometers made to optimise measurement in a variety of process environments The three main product categories are: SMD, thin film sensors and ceramic wire wound RTD sensors.
Each sensor has advantages and limitations depending on application parameters. Our experienced advisors are on hand to answer your questions and ensure you choose the correct sensor for your specific situation and measurement needs.
Ultimately the choice of an RTD sensor depends on many specifics. Kamet has been in the high temperature world for many years and has extensive knowledge of the industry and the latest developments. The fact that we supply three different types of platinum temperature sensor makes us your ideal advisor and supplier.
Kamet’s commitment to quality is reflected by our choice to partner with expert suppliers in the field: Heraeus Nexensos (SMD and thin film sensors) and RTD Products (ceramic wire wound sensors).
Heraeus Nexensos produces high-quality thin films and PCBs. Heraeus supplies us a wide selection of Pt temperature sensors for different applications. The Pt100 thin film sensors are available in a wide range of tolerances, varying from class B up to 1/10 DIN.
RTD products is our main supplier for ceramic wire wound Pt100. All ceramic wire wound RTDs are manufactured in the UK.
