A sensor called an RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) varies in resistance as a function of temperature. As the sensor’s temperature rises, the resistance rises as well.
The link between resistance and temperature is widely known and repeatable over time. A passive device is an RTD. It doesn’t generate an output by itself.
By running a modest electrical current through the sensor to produce a voltage, external electronic devices can measure the sensor’s resistance. Typically, measuring currents are no more than 1 mA and no more than 5 mA without the risk of self-heating.
The Global rtd sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The most popular RTD sensor, the Omega RTD PT100, is composed of platinum (PT) and has a resistance value of 100 Ohm at 0 °C. Because the measurement instrument itself, as well as the lead wires, connections, and other Pt100 components in the circuit including the sensing element, add extra resistance to the circuit.
How the circuit is set up affects how precisely the sensor’s resistance can be estimated and how much extraneous resistance in the circuit can affect the temperature reading. We must also provide a method of correcting for this error because the lead wire that connects the resistance element to the measuring device has a resistance of its own.
RTD sensing circuits frequently employ the three wire arrangement types: 2 wire, 3 wire, and 4 wire. Another possibility is a 2-wire arrangement with a compensatory loop.
The demand for a small, flexible temperature sensor is met by the microRTD sensor created by Heraeus Nexensos. The sensor is prepared to move into pilot plant production as a result of a well-focused development effort. The microRTD can be used in applications that call for temperature control on specific hot spots or need a reference sensor that contributes to the overall small system layout.
It has a small footprint of 0.6 mm x 0.3 mm and a low profile of 50 microns. The bendable microRTD sensor can make conformal contact to curved or flexible surfaces due to its low profile and novel production technology, enabling quick and accurate temperature detection. The operational temperature range is between -40 and +140 °C.
Four RTD sensor inputs, each individually configurable for sensor type, are used in the new Brainboxes ED-582 Industrial Ethernet to RTD module to measure temperature. The ED-582 is compatible with 2, 3 and 4 wire sensors and supports all widely used industry standards (Pt-100, Pt-1000, and Ni-120). The industrial spec ensures safe module operation in harsh environments and extreme temperatures (-30°C to +80°C/-22oF to +176oF).
The ED-582 updates quickly, and its reading range of -200°C to +600°C and sampling rate of 5 measurements per second ensure accurate readings over long distances and periods of time.
The ED-582 integrates seamlessly into existing networks and takes up little cabinet space, measuring just 129 mm deep and 23 mm wide. It features a non-conducting polyamide casing, removable numbered terminal blocks for simple wiring, and an integral DIN rail clip.
