he diagram opposite shows an overview of the temperature range of the various sensors.
– for Pt100 resistance sensors adhere to DIN IEC 751
– for Ni100 resistance sensors adhere to DIN 43760
– for thermocouple sensors adhere to DIN IEC 584
These thermocouples are very common, economic and deliver a high thermoelectric voltage. Disadvantage: danger of corrosion. Iron becomes brittle with sulphurous gases.
These thermocouples are very common, demonstrate excellent long-term stability but only have a low thermoelectric voltage.
These thermocouples are not common, since they appeared only recently on the market. They can be used for very high temperatures and can replace elements out of noble metal.
