Components of RTD

S Bharadwaj Reddy
Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) is a temperature sensor which measures temperature using the principle that the resistance of a metal changes with temperature. In practice, an electrical current is transmitted...

Disadvantages of Resistance Temperature Detectors

S Bharadwaj Reddy
Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs), are sensors used to measure temperature. Many RTD elements consist of a length of fine wire wrapped around a ceramic or glass core but other constructions...
