Temperature and Temperature Measurement, Part 2

SKU: ICTT200CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Among the many temperature measuring instruments found in industrial facilities are several that use electricity as a basis for temperature measurement. Therefore, technicians are frequently called upon to install, remove, inspect, and troubleshoot a variety of electrical temperature measuring devices. This second course on Temperature and Temperature Measurement covers the basic operating principles behind the most commonly used electrical temperature sensors and an infrared temperature detector, all of which use electricity as a basis for temperature measurement. Also discussed are some common maintenance and troubleshooting procedures related to thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), and thermistors.
