Temperature probes allow temperature to be measured via an NTC, PTC, RTD or other sensor. Widely used in industry, these wired probes are connected to devices to measure and analyze their signals. The choice of temperature sensor depends on the application and the constraints to which it is subjected.
What is a probe temperature?
Looking for a temperature measuring device. Still need to determine the type of probe you need? To choose a temperature probe, the environment and the application must be taken into account. We will not use the same probe to measure the temperature of an electric motor and an air temperature.
There are many parameters to consider:
Temperature range - Size - Response time - Communication - Connections - Electrical insulation - Certifications - Protection index - Fixings - etc...
The parameters listed below are the main ones, but depending on the field of application and the constraints, the list of specifications can be longer. All of these considerations must be taken into account when selecting your probe and we are here to guide you and offer you the most suitable product.
Temperature sensor of contact
These types of temperature probes must be in physical contact with the object to be measured. They use conduction to monitor temperature variations.
These meters can be used to measure solids, liquids or gases over a wide temperature range and feature a fast response time.
Temperature sensor without contact
These types of temperature probes use convection and radiation to measure temperature changes. They can be used to detect liquids, solids or gases that emit radiant or convective energy.
These probes are generally used to measure ambient air temperatures.
Where do we use probes temperature?
Many industries use probes to measure and monitor temperature.
The most common are automotive, medical and food. Each industry has specific requirements for its thermal measurement instruments. For example, in the food industry, a cooking temperature probe is useful in determining if items are safe for consumption. Depending on the industry, the selection criteria differ: resistance to high temperatures, high precision, response time, etc.
where can you get a temperature sensor?
Whatever type of probe you are looking for (thermocouple, thermistor, CTN, Pt100…), you will find it at Guilcor.
