Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are temperature sensing devices consisting of a wire coil or deposited film of pure metal. The element’s resistance increases with temperature in a known and repeatable manner.
Thermocouples with a noble metal junction may be rated as high as 1700°C (3100°F). The inherent simplicity of thermocouples makes them resistant to shock and vibration. A fine-wire thermocouple junction takes up little space and has low mass, making it suitable for point sensing and fast response.
