What is a PRT Sensor - Reference Information
PRT: What is a PRT Sensor?
A PRT is simply an acronym of Platinum Resistance Thermometer, a type of resistance temperature sensor used for a wide variety of temperature measurement applications. They are also commonly referred to as RTD and Pt100 Sensors. There are many styles of PRT Sensor and typically they are Pt100, although Pt1000 is also popular, both are available in a wide range of designs and constructions.
Typical PRT SensorsMineral Insulated
PRT Sensors Our most popular style of PRT sensor and ideal for most applications. Vast choice of terminations e.g. pot seals, cables, connectors, heads etc. Rigid Stem
PRT Sensors Ideal for rigid stem applications or where the sensor is shorter than 50mm, limited to 250°C. Wide choice of terminations Hand Held
PRT SensorsA range of hand held PRT Sensors to suit a variety of applications from general purpose to surface and air temperature measurements PRT Sensors for
Surface Measurements A wide range of PRT sensors for surface measurements including self adhesive patch, pipe, magnetic etc.
