Flexible Temperature Measurement with the ZSSC3241 Enables Bridge as Temperature Sensor

Accurate measurement using sensor elements requires precise and local measurement of the element’s temperature for correction and compensation across a wide operating range. Thus, an integral part of Sensor Signal Conditioner (SSC) functionality is to provide at least one or more methods to measure temperature of the sensor element, which is typically a resistive bridge or capacitive transduc... » read more

Radiation thermometers The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a thermometer that can measure radiation within a few thousandths of a degree Celsius. The so-called Ambient-Radiation Thermometer (ART) from NIST is a new type of radiation thermometer, which measures infrared radiation (IR) given off by objects without touching them. Measuring 60 centimeters ... » read more
