RTD1000 Temperature Sensors

High-accuracy multipoint temperature measurement is here! Degree Controls released the RTD1000 platform of temperature sensors for product and process engineers to conduct single or multipoint temperature testing with higher accuracy than ever before. The RTD1000 is ideal for multipoint temperature monitoring of demanding applications where temperature sensors need to be placed in multiple locations to monitor processes and systems. With the RTD1000, high-accuracy air velocity measurements can also be augmented with precise temperature measurements in a single multipoint test setup.

With choice of sensor head styles, the RTD1000 platform offers air stream and surface temperature measurement with an accuracy of ±0.1°C. Core temperature sensing is done with a platinum RTD element, well-matched to industrial applications. The sensing element is connected to 5 meters (16.4 ft) of cable with a USB connector to plug directly into °C Port data acquisition hardware or a PC. Unlike other RTDs on the market, RTD1000 sensors from Degree Controls ship precalibrated and ready to take temperature measurements

Multipoint temperature measurement

The high-accuracy RTD1000 temperature sensor is designed for use with Degree Controls multipoint airflow instrumentation and the °C Port family of data acquisition instruments. Like other USB-based sensors and sensor arrays from Degree Controls, the RTD1000 connects directly to °C Port data acquisition instruments or a PC. Paired with °C Port, Windows®-based AccuTrac™ software collects up to 180 points of air velocity, air temperature, surface temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure data, in real time. Simply connect USB sensors to a °C Port to log multiple sensor readings simultaneously.

The RTD1000 temperature sensor is a plug and play device, consistent with its companion air velocity and humidity sensors. RTD sensors may be added to multipoint airflow and temperature test setups at any time, even during an ongoing experiment.

High-accuracy multipoint temperature measurement with RTD1000 temperature sensors saves setup and test time. With RTD1000 and the ease of AccuTrac™ software, engineers and researchers can collect temperature data efficiently and with the accuracy they need, allowing for more time to focus on analysis and interpretation of test results.
