Once used for only the most demanding applications, the advancement in technology and decrease in price has made Infrared temperature sensors a commonly used temperature measurement sensor. This article describes their theory of operation, common applications and the different types of infrared temperature sensors.
In this post we will provide a a basic understanding thermocouples including theory of operation, the different types and styles of thermocouples and which thermocouple configurations are best suited for different application environments.
This article discusses instrumentation to measure dew point and humidity in an industrial environment. The two most common types of instruments, capacitance based sensors and chilled mirror hygrometers are covered in detail. The benefits and disadvantages of each type of instrument is discussed well as applications for which they are best suited.
