PT Sensor
The Platinum Resistance Temperature Detector (Pt-RTD) chip consists of a thin film Platinum film deposited on a high purity aluminum oxide substrate. In a chip form, the Pt-RTD provides a significant cost advantage compared to the conventional wire wound Pt-RTD.
Due to the stability of the TCR of the platinum element, OTP Protection function, the highly advanced packaging materials, and processing technologies, the Pt-RTD in a chip form is able to withstand temperatures ranging from -260°C to 1000°C.
The main feature of Pt-RTD is the linear relationship between temperature and resistance value. It is a key characteristic needed to be able to measure temperature over a very wide range of operating temperatures.
