What kind of RTD cables & PRT cable do you need?

RTD Cables & PRT Cable

Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) and Platinum Resistance Detectors (PRTs) offer an alternative measurement technology to thermocouples and are generally used at extreme temperatures. RTDs are used because of their simpler operation, increased stability and sensitivity although they have an increased response time. PRTs measure temperature by determining the electrical resistance of a piece of pure platinum wire.

Heatsense offers a variety of RTD and PRT extension cables available in 2, 4 or 6 core configurations and sheathed in PFA, PTFE, ETFE, FEP or PVC to suit a variety of applications.
