Thermocouples Versus RTDs

Choosing the right temperature sensor requires evaluation of the environment, temperature range, accuracy, and speed of response. [ more ]

4 Steps to Choosing the Right Temperature Sensor

Temperature measurements are among the most common data logging applications found across a broad variety of industries including medical monitoring, cold chain integrity, machine monitoring, and many more. Four main types of temperature sensors are used with data loggers, and finding the right type can seem like a lengthy decision. [ more ]

Thermocouple Basics from the NIST - National Institute of Standards and Technology

Thermocouples rely on the fact that when a conductor is exposed to a thermal gradient, it will naturally generate a voltage. (This is known as the thermoelectric effect.) If two different conductors are arranged in a circuit across a temperature gradient, each conductor will generate a different voltage. The net voltage difference will be proportional to the magnitude of the temperature gradient, customarily in the range of a few microvolts per degree, and that voltage is converted to a temperature by the thermometer electronics.
