Abstract

A temperature sensor using a temperature sensing resistor in place of the thermistor represents a significant improvement in cost, linearity and dissipation constant. In addition, the resistor is much more rugged than a microprobe thermistor.

A temperature sensor using a temperature sensing resistor in place of the thermistor represents a significant improvement in cost, linearity and dissipation constant. In addition, the resistor is much more rugged than a microprobe thermistor.

As shown in the drawing, the sensor comprises a temperature sensing resistor 2 with silicone wire leads 4 secured to sensing surface 6. The resistor 2 is connected by silicone sponge rubber 8 to a plastic housing 10.
