Temperature

Gauge

Temperature Gauge: A device used to indicate the temperature of an item being monitored. The display can be an analog dial or a digital readout. Common methods of measuring temperature include bimetallic strip (bending of which increases with temperature) and the thermocouple which produces an electronic voltage that depends on the temperature.

IR & Other

IR Temperature Transmitter. A device for the remote (non-contact) measurement of an object. The device optically senses the object's thermal infrared radiation (IR) and converts that input to an electrical signal that can be used to operate an integrated digital or analog readout, or to control another device. These transmitters are ideal for measuring rapidly changing processes. Because they do not contact the object being measured, they can measure temperatures up to 3000 degrees Centigrade.

RTD's

RTD Temperature Transmitter. A measurement device that converts an RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) resistance measurement to a current signal that can be used to operate an integrated digital or analog readout, or to control another device. The RTD component, also called a resistance thermometer, is a temperature sensor that exploits the change in electrical resistance of some materials with changing temperature.

Transmitters

Thermocouple. A device consisting of the junction of two dissimilar metallic conductors, such as copper and iron, which generate different currents when subjected to the same temperature. When this junction is connected to a third substance, the thermocouple generates a resultant current that can determine the temperature of the third substance or control an associated device.
