PT100 Resistance Temperature Sensor
Ideal for monitoring temperature during concrete curing, for evaluating seasonal variations within ground and structures and to interpret temperature-related stress and volume changes in dams.
Measures the resistance of a platinum element. The resistance is then converted to temperature.
- Accurate and robust with good long-term stability
- Suitable for manual or remote reading and datalogging
- Strong, screened and flexible cable
- Choice of temperature sensors to suit project and site requirements
- Low cost option
- Cable lengths can be up to 100m or 1000m, dependent on choice of sensor
Resistance Sensor: The sensor is placed in the medium to be monitored. A platinum element changes resistance with temperature and the resulting resistance change is converted to temperature using a handheld readout or data acquisition system.
Temperature sensors are used for measuring temperature in concrete, soil and rock including:
