MadgeTech is taking control over quality with the production of select thermocouples, RTD, and thermistors probes. As MadgeTech continues to evolve, shifting custom probe manufacturing in-house reinforces its commitment to provide the highest-quality data loggers on the market.
RTD and thermocouple probes are both used to measure
temperature, but which one is right for your application? To help decide which will
perform best based on specific needs, there are three main questions to ask.
The temperature is measured at the RTD element for RTD probes, or the thermocouple junction for thermocouple probes. This is typically close to tip of the probe in most cases, so the temperature is measured close to the tip of the probe.
However, response time is typically better if more of the probe is exposed to the environment/product/media/etc.
