Automotive-Qualified Temperature Sensor

There’s a new temperature sensor for use in harsh environments: The Ni1000SOT.

There’s a new temperature sensor for use in harsh environments: The Ni1000SOT. This nickel thin-film resistance temperature detector (RTD) is suitable for use in contact temperature sensing. The characteristics of this temperature sensor comply with former DIN 43760, which defines temperature profile and tolerance class for nickel-based temperature sensors. According to Measurement Specialties, the Ni1000SOT sensor is qualified for the most demanding automotive applications, including exposure to hot oil. The RTD is also suitable for many industrial applications with harsh conditions.
