Temperature Sensors

  • NI offers a variety of temperature sensors including RTDs, thermocouples, and accessories
  • Compatible with NI temperature measurement devices and software
  • Ready for out-of-the-box temperature measurements

Temperature sensors are required for a variety of monitoring and industrial applications. The most common temperature sensors are thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), and thermistors. They offer different performance and cost trade-offs, depending on your application. When you combine them with NI measurement devices and software, you can easily create a complete measurement system to acquire from a single channel or thousands of temperature channels. NI LabVIEW system design software and the NI-DAQmx driver provide easily configured measurements and predefined scaling coefficients for temperature sensors and return synchronized temperature data in units of degrees.
