How to calibrate an RTD ?

Introduction:- There are two types of calibrations applicable to PRTs—characterization and tolerance testing. The type of calibration to perform is determined by the way in which the UUT is to be used and the accuracy required by the user. Characterization is the type of calibration in which the unit under test (UUT) resistance is determined at several temperature points… Read More »

RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) & Thermistors

RTD and Thermistors are simplest device in these devices resistance is increase when temperature is increase or decrease. when temp. is increase , resistance is increase  is call positive temp coefficient and vise versa. Thermistors are devices made of metal oxide which either increase in resistance with increasing  temperature.RTDs are devices made of pure metal… Read More »
