It’s always good to stay up-to-date on the “things” component in IIoT formula, this white paper from Temecula, CA-based Opto 22 provides a comprehensive look at the multiple types of temperature monitoring and applications.
This excerpt below gives a taste of what this white paper includes:
Sensors used for temperature monitoring and data acquisition
can be quite varied. Applications ranging from simple room
temperature monitoring to highly sophisticated batch process
control can all be highly dependent on obtaining accurate
temperature readings. The primary types of sensors used for
this purpose are resistance temperature detectors (RTDs),
thermocouples, integrated circuit temperature detectors
(ICTDs), thermistors, and infrared sensors.
