Temperature sensors are electronic components that provide an electrical signal as a measure of temperature. Platinum has established itself as the resistance material for temperature sensors in industrial measurement technology. Its advantages include high chemical resistance, comparatively easy workability (especially for wire production), the possibility of high-purity representation and good reproducibility of the electrical properties.
There are various designs of platinum chip temperature sensors with connecting wires within the series, which essentially differ in the following characteristics: material of the connecting wire, in the processing method and in the operating temperature.
The accuracy of temperature sensors is divided into so-called tolerance classes or accuracy classes. There are 4 accuracy classes: F0.1; F0.15; F0.3 and F0.6. For each class a maximum tolerance or limit deviation is defined.
