Heraeus Nexensos is the Global Market Leader for Maximum Reliability in Temperature Sensing.
High-precision temperature measurement is essential for many key technologies, and a prerequisite for efficient technical solutions. Platinum temperature sensors are characterized by high stability, repeatability, and fast response times. Heraeus offers a wide range of platinum temperature sensors with a variety of resistance values and temperature coefficients.
The possible applications for platinum thin film technology far exceeds the well-known temperature sensor. Innovative multifunction chips are created by combining sensors, heaters, application-specific electrodes and other structures on a single substrate.
For over 100 years, Heraeus Nexensos continues to develop innovative solutions to support your development goals.
Heraeus Nexensos offers a full line of Platinum RTD elements. The Thin Film Platinum RTD Elements (also known as a Platinum Resistor, Platinum Temperature Sensor or Thin Film RTD) are characterized by high stability, interchangeability and fast response time.
Platinum RTD sensors (PT RTD) are available with different resistance values (PT100, PT200, PT500, PT1000) and different temperature coefficients (TC3750, TC3770, TC3850). The Surface mount RTD (SMD) Elements are designed for automated board mounting in high-volume applications. Standard SMD Elements are available in Platinum (Pt) 3850 and Nickel 6180 temperature coefficients. These types of sensors are also known as an SMD RTD, SMT and SMT RTD. Ceramic Wire Wound Platinum RTD Elements and Sensor Assemblies are although available.
