Temperature detectors based on the phenomenon of metal resistance changes with the change of temperature are probably the most
popular type of temperature sensors used in industry sector.
Most popular temperature resistors are based on platinum and nickel. Historically the first sensor made was the platinum sensor with
the resistance of 100 and labelled PT100.
Madur company uses the platinum PT500 sensors for temperature measurements.
Types of PT sensors
PT sensors are produced in a variety of versions, differing from each other by
1. resistor's manufacturing method
2. type of sensor's casing
3. precision class
4. type of electrical connections
5. Value of R0
