resistance properties and the nonlinearity of the resistivity curve limits the use of thermistors.
Information on important characteristics of different classes of resistance thermometers is included in Table M-3.
Accessories. Some forms of Wheatstone-bridge circuits are used for the measurement of temperature with base-metal or industrial platinum resistance thermometers, while the Mueller bridge is used with precision platinum resistance thermometers.
Thermocouple thermometer
A thermocouple thermometer is a temperature-measuring instrument in which the electromotive force developed in a circuit composed of two dissimilar metals is used as a means of temperature measurement. It consists of a device for measuring electromotive force, a sensing element (thermocouple), and electrical conductors operatively connecting the two.
The thermocouple thermometer operates on the principle that an electric current will flow in a closed circuit of two dissimilar metals when the junctions of the metals are at two different temperatures. Thermocouple materials are available for use within the approximate limits of -300 to 3200F. Platinum is the generally accepted standard material to which the thermoelectric characteristics of other materials are referred. The emf-temperature relations of conventional thermoelements versus platinum are shown in Fig. M-2. Reference tables of
