Measuring Temperature

There are many ways to measure temperature and different devices can be used. These temperature measuring devices or temperature sensors can include; Temperature probes Thermometers Thermistors Thermocouples RTD sensors Combined temperature sensors Semi-conductor based temperature...

Hall Effect Applications

We have a range of hall effect sensors which are programmable. Angular position sensors are available in different technologies, these can be either contacting or non-contacting. Their measurement ranges can be either single turn or multiturn. Multiturn sensors can measure angles beyond one...

What does LVDT Stand For?

LVDTs are a sensor used to monitor linear displacement. They convert the linear motion of an object into an electrical signal. Working principle of an LVDT LVTDs are constructed of a primary coil, one or two secondary coils, a ferromagnetic core (or slug), a housing – usually stainless...

Pressure Transducer Definition

Pressure transducers can be defined as a type of sensor which converts physical pressure into an electrical signal. They can be used for measuring pressure in liquids and gases. Pressure transmitter is another term commonly used for a Pressure Transducer and are suitable for a range of applications...

What is a Temperature Sensor?

There are different types of temperature sensors available and they each use different technologies and principles to take the temperature measurement. Different Types of Temperature Sensor Thermistors can be very small in size. They consist of a sensing element which can be either glass or...

Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transducers

The certifications our intrinsically safe pressure transducers hold are ATEX/IECEx and UL/CSA approval.  What is an Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transducer? The term “Intrinsically-safe” refers to equipment and devices which, during use, will not release enough thermal or...
