Temperature Sensors - Overview and Types of Resistance Temperature Detector and IC Temperature Sensors Available

IST platinum temperature sensors provide solutions for extreme temperature applications. IST platinum temperature sensors are designed with the highest quality materials, allowing them to operate within a temperature range of -200°C to +1000°C.

Standard DIN 60751 sensors are offered in class B (0.12%), class A (0.06%), 1/3 class B (0.04%), and higher accuracies upon request.

IST platinum temperature sensors are available in SMD and wired configurations, and in sizes ranging from 0.8mm (W) x 1.2mm (L) to 2mm (W) x 10mm (L). Standard sensors can be customized with a variety of wire material, length, and configurations with user defined attributes such as nominal resistance, TCR value, and tolerance class.

Nickel Thin Film RTD Temperature Sensors

IST nickel temperature sensors provide solutions for precise temperature applications are a direct replacement for nickelbalco sensors. Operating within a temperature range of - 60°C to +300°C, IST nickel temperature sensors are offered in Standard DIN 43760, ½ DIN 43760, and 2x DIN 43760 and have TCR values ranging from 4280 ppm/K to 6720 ppm/K.

Also available in both SMD and wired configurations, the standard sizes range from 2mm (L) x 1.2mm (W) to 10mm (L) x 5mm (W). Like platinum RTDs, standard sensors can be customized to fit application needs.

Applications of Platinum Thin Film Temperature Sensors

The applications of platinum thin film temperature sensors include:

  • Automotive
  • Wireless Resistive Temperature Sensor
  • Direct Wire-Wound Replacement

Automotive

IST thin film platinum temperature sensors provide solutions for extreme temperature applications. IST produces sensors that are specifically designed to operate in temperatures of up to +1000°C, making them ideal for automotive applications such as engine and exhaust temperature regulation. IST sensors provide accurate readings and longterm stability in these conditions.

Wireless Resistive Temperature Sensor

IST manufactures platinum thin film temperature sensors in wireless configurations for surface mount applications. These sensors come in sizes of 1206, 0805, and 0603 and can operate in a temperature range of -60°C to +250°C. Classes for these SMD sensors include DIN 60751; class A (0.06%), class B (0.12%), and 2x class B (0.24%).

Direct Wire-Wound Replacement

IST offers a series of platinum thin film temperature sensors that directly replace wirewound platinum temperature sensors. IST’s thin film sensors combine the features of traditional wire wound platinum sensors such as accuracy, long-term stability, repeatability, interchangeability, and wide temperature range, while providing additional features such as robustness, higher resolution, shorter response times, and an improved price/performance ratio.

Temperature Sensor ICs

The TSic™ product family consists of chip-integrated and calibrated temperature sensors with an integrated signal converter for analog or digital signal output. It offers measurement accuracy from ±0.5°C to far below ±0.1°C and also medium (0.1°C) to high (0.034°C, 0.004°C) signal resolution for optimal temperature control. The measurement with the TSic™ is very simple and offers not only excellent accuracy, but also long-term stability. Due to its low power consumption (typically 30 Microampere), it is well suited for data loggers, digital thermometers, and temperature monitoring and measurement applications.
