Platinum (Pt) resistance elements are temperature sensors based upon the property that the electrical resistance of platinum (Pt) increases with a rise in temperature. Generally, Pt elements are not designed for use in their discrete element form. Some type of housing or assembly is usually required to provide protection from the environment.
