We manufacture and design cable resistance thermometers, often called cable rtd’s or cable Pt100’s. Cable resistance thermometers are very cost effective for temperature measurement below 260°C, although some designs are good up to 500°C. The construction of a cable resistance thermometer consists of a RTD element, often a Pt100 securely attached to a length of cable. The Pt100 element can then be protected in a number of ways and designed to get the best measurement from your process. The maximum temperature for a cable resistance thermometer is determined by its insulation but there are high temperature options such as glass fibre if required.
Cable Resistance Thermometer Designs
There are a variety of options when it comes to cable resistance thermometer design. Select the appropriate design below to view full specifications.
Common designs include:
If you are unsure exactly what you need, get in touch and we can help identify your requirements.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Screw Tip
This resistance thermometer design is often used by an equipment manufacturer where quick installation and replacement may be required.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Metal Pocket
The resistance thermometer is protected by a metal sheath. This configuration is popular in original equipment manufacture.
Cable Resistance Thermometer with Ceramic Pocket
This design is often used for high voltage applications. There are many variations on ceramic pocket that are available.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Pipe Clamp
This design is often used for boilers or frost protection and anywhere a pipe or its contents need to be measured.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Polymer Coating
This FEP polymer coated design displays a high level of acid resistance and voltage resistance.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Eye/Washer
A very flexible design commonly used across a range of industries in multiple applications.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Exposed Element
A very inexpensive component for equipment manufacturers to install.
Cable Resistance Thermometer With Handle
This cable resistance thermometer design is used as an insertion probe in the food industry. This can be supplied with a miniature plug and hand held readout.
All our cable resistance thermometers are custom made, as such we are able to tailor your sensors exactly to your requirements. There are many options available including:
We’ve made cable resistance thermometers for over 15 years and today we are considered the best choice for custom built temperature sensors in the UK. We continue to apply our expertise and invest in the latest technology to provide our customers with the highest quality temperature sensors available.
