Sensors • Temperature Sensors

Used to measure the thermal radiant power of infrared or optical radiation from an area’s surface.

Generally there are two types of temperature sensors: contact and noncontact. Contact temperature sensors measure their own temperature, while a noncontact sensor measures the thermal radiant power of infrared or optical radiation from an area’s surface.In most industrial process applications a temperature sensor is inserted into a thermowell or protection tube. Temperature sensors are available in a number of different assemblies including: threaded, flanged, van stone, weld-in, socket, sanitary, and pipe.
