CATEGORY > Carlson Instruments

CARLSON RESISTANCE THERMOMETER

DESCRIPTION

The Carlson Resistance Thermometer is used for the remote reading of temperature where a quick response is not required. It is well sealed against moisture and its diffusivity is approximately that of concrete; therefore it is especially suited for embedment in concrete to measure internal temperature.

The active element consists of a coil of copper wire wound non-inductively on an insulated spool in such a way as to be stress free.

Standard Carlson Thermometers have a resistance of 39.00 ohms at 0°F. Resistance increases at the rate of 0.10 ohm per degree Fahrenheit. To convert resistance readings to temperature, subtract 39.00 from the measured resistance and move the decimal by one digit to read the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.

When any Carlson readout instrument is used, the resolution is 0.1°F. The useful range is limited by the insulating materials to between 0° and 180°F (-18° to +82°C). The thermometer is adjusted to be within 0.5°F at 70°F and the error is less than 1°F (0.5°C) throughout the range. It measures moderate changes in temperature accurately to 0.1°F (.05°C).

QUICK SPECS

Long-term reliability and stability.


Simplified reading in degrees F.


Ideal for direct embedment in concrete.


Proven Carlson design.

APPLICATIONS

Remote reading of temperature where a quick response is not required.

BENEFITS

Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability
