Differences between Resistance Temperature Detectors and Thermocouples

March 10, 2021

Temperature is a very important and common measurement parameter in the process of industrial and agricultural production, resistance temperature sensors and thermocouples, as commonly used measurement tools in the industry, can be used for temperature measurement. So what are the main differences?

What's the Difference between Resistance Temperature Detectors and Thermocouples?


                                               Resistance temperature detectors are used for temperature measurement


The most common resistance temperature detector is resistance temperature detector pt100, mainly made of platinum (Pt). It has the advantages of acid and alkali resistance, no deterioration,with fairly linearity. No matter which is used, temperature sensors play a very important role in product quality and safety, production efficiency and saving energy.
