The CTP6000 platinum resistance thermometer (PRT) has been designed both for precise temperature measurement in fixed laboratories and also for on-site use. It combines excellent technical characteristics with a robust design. If the ‘off the shelf’ range will not suit the needs the thermometers can be supplied custom manufactured to almost any specification.
The thermometer’s connections range from open cable ends, through common DIN connectors, to intelligent SMART connectors. With a SMART connector, the sensor-specific coefficients can be stored directly in the probe’s connector. Thus the SMART connector can easily be switched between instruments or channels. Any confusion of the coefficients is thus ruled out.
For calibration, the test items and the standard thermometer are brought to the same temperature in a temperature control unit.
As soon as a stable temperature is reached, the test items are read or their output signals are measured (resistance, thermoelectric voltage, standard signal) and compared with the standard thermometer.
The CTP6000, with a length of 500 mm [19.69 in], has been designed specifically for fixed-point calibration, which enables a calibration with the highest-possible accuracy.
