Sensors

Much of our work has involved sensors and transducers, instrument design and applications. This page is a labor of love: sensor technology intrigues us. We’ve learned a lot over the years and are still learning.

Most sensor users are not electronic designers but rather are people who design, program and apply sensors to robotics, automotive, aerospace, military, industrial and other applications. Our hope is to make sensor technology understandable. We’ll be writing for the user, not the researcher or sensor designer. No calculus, theoretical physics or the like.

We’re starting small, growing over time. Come back and visit us often. We’ll be continually adding more info.

Temperature – Which Sensor is Best?

Thermocouple? Resistance thermometer (RTD)? Thermistor? Silicon sensor? Each has its own advantages and limitations. The choice depends on your needs and applications. This white paper examines and compares them to help you understand and choose.
