Sensor Fundamentals: Temperature Measurements


Learn about the basics of taking accurate temperature measurements and become familiar with components that make up a temperature measurement system. This video covers the applications, advantages, and disadvantages of different type of sensors such as thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), thermistors, and Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs). You also will be introduced to the fundamentals of signal processing techniques such as noise filtering, cold-junction compensation, device offset, and more when performing data acquisition.
