The sensor of a resistance thermometer features a temperature-dependent electrical resistance. This increases with the temperature and is therefore known as a PTC (positive temperature coefficient). With industrial measuring requirements, primarily Pt100 or Pt1000 measuring resistors are used. In IEC 60751 (DIN EN 60751), the exact characteristics of these measuring resistors and of the thermometers based on them are defined. For further information on the properties of a Pt100 or Pt1000 temperature sensor, see WIKA technical information IN 00.17.
WIKA can supply all resistance thermometers, either with Pt100 or with Pt1000 temperature sensors:
