  • Thermocouples

    THERMOCOUPLES  Thermocouple is one of the most popular type of temperature sensors used in industry. Thermocouple uses thermoelectric effect (Seebeck's effect). The construction of thermocouple sensors Thermocouple is produced as two wires: metal (alloy) X and metal (alloy) Y join (welded) at one end. Such pair of wires is then coiled with an electrical insulator and tightly ...

  • Numerical Modeling of a Thermal Conductivity Matric Suction Sensor

    Thermal conductivity matric suction sensors appear to be a promising device for the measurement of suction in soil. The technique indirectly measures matric suction by measuring the thermal conductivity of a ceramic block. This paper uses both a spherical and a cylindrical porous medium to simulate the heat flow in a thermal conductivity matric suction sensor. It is found that, although the ...

  • Mind the bandgap | A temperature profiling technology comparison

    When it comes down to determining temperature in environmental media, there are many options—from fiber-optic to infrared sensing technologies—to observe and quantify the relative kinetic energy of a material. For single point data acquisition and a given specific temperature range and target medium, of course certain technologies are more optimal than others.  When it comes to ...

  • Determining Concrete Maturity with Temperature Monitoring

    Thermocouple Data Loggers Save Time & Improve Safety Concrete maturity is a measure of how much a batch of freshly poured concrete has cured. It is a quick indicator of the in-place strength at that point in time relative to the ultimate strength when the concrete is fully cured. Traditional measurements of concrete strength rely on compression tests such as made in a lab on field cured ...

  • Part I: How fast of a sample rate does your data logger need?

    We often receive requests for data logging systems that can sample the inputs 100’s or 1000’s of times a second. And while we offer several different systems that can provide kHz sample rates, we often try to get a better understanding of the application to see if this is really necessary. As you increase the sample rate there are a number of costs that go up quickly. It’s not ...
