Technical Resources

Labfacility Technical Resources

These Technical Resource guides are a comprehensive reference text for users of thermocouples, PRTs and thermistors and associated instrumentation.

Detailed enough for engineers and scientists, it is also suitable for technicians and students. Written with practical bias, the guides contain considerable reference data and basic theory and is therefore of great value as a training aid for those entering the field of temperature measurement and control.

The broad scope of the guides includes detailed temperature sensor guidance, sensor theory and practice and comprehensive applications guidance. The guides describe temperature control, transmitters, instrumentation and data acquisition and a reference section carries that has a wealth of data on thermocouple and platinum resistance thermometry.

The emphasis is on practical aspects, but the basic theory and applications aspects will be of particular interest to students and apprentices.
