High vibration environments can cause inaccurate temperature measurement as well as sensor failure. It is with this in mind, that Kamet offers a range of robust thin film sensors which are specifically designed for these kinds of challenging applications. These RTD temperature sensors are furthermore:
RTD stands for Resistance Temperature Detector. An RTD measures temperature by the change in resistance values of metal during heating or cooling . ‘Thin film’ refers to the unique design of a series of sensors consisting of an ultra-thin layer of platinum on a ceramic substrate. Passivation is achieved through a glass micro-coating, which also makes this a rugged sensor with excellent resistance to (thermal) shock, vibration and environmental influences.
Other important design advantages of a thin film:
Thin film RTD sensors allow temperature measurement in the most demanding of applications making them the perfect match for most industries.
Consult our knowledge base for more information about RTD elements.
Thin film RTD sensors come in a variety of sizes, shapes and tolerance options including DIN Class A and DIN Class B variants. The different resistance levels: Pt50; Pt100; Pt500; Pt1000 mean they fit a wide range in temperature measurement needs.
This design and temperature versatility combined with ruggedness and durability makes thin film sensors the ideal RTD sensor for many industrial applications including:
The thin film sensors differ primarily in operating temperature range. The min/max operating temperature of your application must fall within the operating range specified for the part. Here are some of our product types:
