THERMOCOUPLES AND THERMORESISTANCES
Thermocouples and Thermoresistances are components which are employed to measure the temperature. The Thermocouples consist of two metallic conductors, joint at one end (the so-called “junction”) encapsulated into a metallic tube: if the temperature changes, the voltage that can be measured at the conductors terminals changes as well. This variation can be directly linked to the temperature that the junction is experiencing. Our produce include standard thermocouples (with grounded-junction) and mineral oxide thermocouples (with isolated junction).
Thermoresistances are components which are employed to measure the temperature but, differently from thermocouples, the sensing element is a component, located at the end of the sensor, whose electrical resistance changes with changing temperature. This variation yields a measure of the temperature that the sensing element is experiencing.
Also for thermoresistances, both the standard (conductors insulation in fibreglass-silicone) and the mineral-oxide version (insulation made of MgO compressed powder) are possible.
