Pt100 temperature sensor – useful things to know
Pt100 temperature sensors are very common sensors in the process industry. This article discusses many useful and practical things to know about them, including information on RTD and PRT sensors, different Pt100 mechanical structures, the temperature-resistance relationship, temperature coefficients, accuracy classes and much more.
How to calibrate temperature sensors
Every temperature measurement loop has a temperature sensor as the first component in the loop. So, it all starts with a temperature sensor. The temperature sensor plays a vital role in the accuracy of the whole temperature measurement loop.
How to calibrate a temperature switch
Temperature switches are commonly used in various industrial applications to control specific functions. As with any measuring instrument, they need to be calibrated regularly to ensure they are working accurately and reliably.
Sanitary temperature sensor calibration
Sanitary temperature sensors are commonly used in many industries, such as food and beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical and life-science. The calibration of sanitary sensors is different and far more difficult than calibrating normal temperature sensors.
Temperature units and temperature unit conversion
In this article, we discuss temperature, temperature scales, temperature units (Kelvin (K), Celsius (°C), Farenheit (°F), Rankine (°R, °Ra) Réaumur (°Ré, °Re)) and temperature unit conversions.

What our customers say
The full built-in MC6 interface in the Beamex MC6-T is a useful feature. Being able to connect external pressure modules allows us to build different routes based on those temperatures and ranges while the other routes can be accomplished with the built-in modules.
It’s amazing to see when the probe is actually at the correct temp and stable before taking a measurement. No guessing and reduces human error. This would save money on probes that may have been tested too early and noted as failed due to its error not yet stabilizing in any other temperature block.
With the Beamex MC6-Ex and FB660 temperature calibrators, we were able to handle and automate all our temperature calibration and produce our calibration certificates which allowed us to save a large amount of time and become more efficient.Jim Unsworth, Instrumentation Technician, F2 Chemicals Ltd, UK
The Beamex equipment is self-explanatory. You give it to someone and they instinctively know what to do with it.Christian Backfisch, Head of Service Department, Tratz GmbH, Germany
Beamex has become our one stop shop for all our calibration requirements, it has streamlined the whole calibration process and helps to monitor and maintain compliance on site.Paul O’Sullivan, Engineering Planner, Zoetis, Ireland
