The Complexity of Sensor Selection

Of all the environmental parameters, temperature is the most commonly measured. But choosing the right type of temperature sensor for your application isn’t as simple as you might think.

Temperature sensors need to accurately sense and measure temperature across a wide range of applications. The sensor you choose needs to also be reliable, cost effective and repeatable—and there are many factors to consider when making a sensor selection.

Our new whitepaper explains it all:

In this free whitepaper, we share:

  • How to measure temperature with contact and non-contact thermometers
  • The difference between the four most common types of sensors—RTDs, thermistors, thermocouples and IC sensors
  • Other forms of non-electronic thermometers
  • Additional considerations such as packaging constructions and agency specifications
