Specialist electromechanical supplier Radiatron announces the JamesTech range of precision temperature sensors, backed by a comprehensive custom packaging service. Detailed characterisation of sensor elements is combined with pre-ageing at elevated temperature to minimise drift, with Radiatron able to guide the selection of critical electrical characteristics as well as providing packaging in a wide range of materials and fixing methods. The core sensor technologies offer 25°C resistances from 2k to 1.4M and between them cover - 50°C to +350°C (see Plate 2). The thermistors are available as standard with accuracies of ±2.5 percent or þ1 percent, making them suitable for precision industrial applications, as well as laboratory and medical equipment.

With a variety of sensor chips available, Radiatron is able to optimise performance for each application, whether gas, fluid or surface temperature measurement is required. Chip response times range from 0.6s for fast acting air sensors, to 17s for smooth response in large process control systems, with options for plastic, brass, PVC and stainless steel packaging.

For maximum convenience, especially in production environments, mounting options include clamp, threaded bush, bolt, springloaded, clip and hand-held probe styles. Additional sensors, such as overtemperature trips and proximity detectors, can also be included in the same assembly.
