            temperature sensor

            What is Temperature Sensor? A temperature sensor is a device which is used for measuring the temperature of anything or any place. In temperature sensors, RTD (resistance temperature detector) elements are used for measuring a temperature which is made by wrapping a fine wire around a ceramic or glass. Normally, copper, nickel or platinum wire […]
