St. Louis, MO – Watlow offers a full line of Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) sensors for a wide variety of process and industrial applications. Watlow engineers can also solve difficult application problems and offer solutions tailored to meet specific application requirements.
Watlow’s RTD sensors are designed to ensure precise and repeatable measurements as well as meet environmental requirements for each application. A high signal-to-noise output increases the accuracy of data transmission and permits greater distances between the sensor and the measuring equipment. Watlow’s RTD sensors can be configured to meet specific application needs with options including element type, lead wire configuration, termination style, sheath materials, lengths and diameters, process connection heads, transmitters, thermowells, spring loading, flanges and surface mount packages.
Watlow RTDs offer a high degree of accuracy and a wide temperature operating range of -200 to 650‚Â°C (-328 to 1202‚Â°F). The linear change in resistance per degree change in temperature makes it easy to interpret the signal, allows for less complex instrumentation and requires no cold junction compensation like that found in a thermocouple.
Predictable resistance at a given temperature can be produced with Watlow’s RTDs. Resistance wire RTDs have a positive coefficient by increasing resistance with temperature increases. These sensors work in a variety of industries including processing, food equipment, plastics processing, petrochemical processing, microelectronics, and air, gas and liquid temperature measurement.
