RTDS and Thermocouples
Both RTDs and Thermocouples are used to measure heat in scales such as Kelvin or Fahrenheit, with a wide range of uses and settings.
Resistance Thermometer Detectors
The electrical resistance of metals rises with the increase in the heat so the metal becomes hotter, while the electrical resistance falls with the heat decrease and the metal becomes colder. RTDs use changes in the electrical resistance of these metals to measure the changes in the temperature. The metals used are usually copper, platinum, nickel…
They work by using two different metals in the sensor which produce a specific voltage that can be read to establish the temperature.
