RTD's

Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are temperature sensors that contain a resistor that changes resistance value as its temperature changes. With a temperature range up to 650°C, RTDs can be used in all applications, but the highest-temperature industrial applications are in motors, generator windings where there is more electrical noise. When made using metals such as platinum, they are very stable and are not affected by corrosion or oxidation.
