Criteria for Temperature Sensor Selection of Thermocouple and RTD Sensor Types
Abstract: You are probably somewhat familiar with the thermocouple, but you must understand that choosing the type (J, K, T, etc.) is not as simple as just picking a compatible temperature span. You must give consideration to the sensor materials, the ambient temperature range, the sensor's sensitivity, and its reaction with the measurement environment. You must also be aware of the inherent limitations of the thermocouple and potential error sources. This white paper will help you to make an informed selection between sensor types and avoid potential problems in your application.
