SMD RTD - Surface-Mount Device

Surface mount RTD (SMD) Elements are designed for automated board mounting in high-volume applications on printed circuit boards where long time stability, interchangeability combined with low costs are important.

Standard SMD Elements are available in Platinum (Pt) 3850 and Nickel 6180 temperature coefficients. Other temperature coefficients and non-standard resistance values are available via special order. These types of sensors are also known as an SMD RTD, SMT and SMT RTD.

Technical Data


SMD sensors are configured as follows:

  • Temperature Coefficient (TC) typically 3850 ppm
  • Temperature Range from -50°C to +130°C
  • Available in Platinum (Pt) and Nickel (Ni)
