Sensors on Circuit Boards: PCB

This platinum temperature sensor on a printed circuit board has been specially designed for use in calorimetry. When designing these sensors, the stringent requirements of this sector with regard to precision, long-term stability, cost minimisation as well as the option for fully automatic further processing were of prime concern. The temperature sensor in an SMD model forms the measurement active element on a PCB.

The chip is connected with terminal faces either with a thin conductive path or via meandering circuit board conductors in order to reduce heat dissipation and to prevent corruption of the measuring results. As a cable set sensor, it is suitable for a wide range of applications within a temperature range of -40°C to 150°C.
