Thermocouples are the workhorse of industrial temperature sensors because they are inexpensive, simple, durable, reasonably fast-responding and, most importantly, supported by a large set of standards and suppliers.
They provide not only the sensors themselves, but also connectors, connecting cable with similar thermoelectric properties at the low temperature end of the measurement ranges and much more.
AssociationsThe Professional and Technical Associations, Societies and Conferences that have interest in and impact happenings in the design and uses of temperature and or moisture sensors of all types.
Bio-Medical TypesVendors of devices that are used to measure the temperature of living organisms such as the human ear and forehead (temperal artery) infrared thermometers. There are more types and likely to be many more as this relatively new technology application area heats up in the 21st Century.
BioMedicalVendors of temperature measurement devices used primarily in medicine and other bio-medical applications including personal use such as oral fever thermometers and (infrared) ear thermometers.
Blackbody SourcesBlackbody thermal radiation sources or blackbody simulators are used in calibration of infrared (IR) radiation thermometers, optical pyrometers, radiation pyrometers, quantitative thermal imagers, radiation heat flux meters, radiometers and similar devices that require a known source of thermal radiation.
Cal Products & ServicesCalibration includes services that are directly traceable to national standards, the National Measurement Institution or their sanctioned organizations, who are the custodians of the International Temperature Scale providing traceability. It also includes calibration lab management tools and software, calibration equipment vendors and those who provide training in the proper use of such equipment and establishing & maintaining competent practices.
