What are contact thermometers?
The term contact thermometer refers to all thermometers that come into direct contact with the medium, the temperature of which needs to be measured. Contact thermometers include expansion thermometers (liquid and bimetal thermometers) and all electrical and electronic thermometers used with temperature sensors.
Industrial contact thermometers consists of the thermosensitive elements (e.g., thermocouple or Pt100) installed in a thermowell or immersion tube for protection. In many cases, the tube features a plug-in socket to connect electrical cables.
This entire structure is standardized and referred to as a measuring insert. Measuring inserts may be equipped with a thermowell and connection head. Together, the thermowell and connection head form the thermowell assembly. The thermowell assembly protects the sensitive measuring insert against mechanical and chemical stress, and the terminals against contamination and moisture.
What are active and passive sensors?
The question of whether a sensor is active or passive depends on whether the sensor independently generates a signal and is therefore active, or a signal is generated using auxiliary energy, making the sensor passive.
Thermocouples are one example of active sensors as they generate thermoelectric voltage due to ambient conditions that can be displayed with a purely analog display measuring device.
Passive sensors traditionally include all resistance-based, capacitive or inductive sensors, and therefore also resistance thermometers. They require a measuring current that is fed via the measuring device. This auxiliary energy is then modulated due to environmental influences and can be evaluated as a signal. With passive sensors, self-heating needs to be taken into account as it can influence the measurement results. As a result, the measuring current for resistance thermometers is typically limited to ≤ 1 mA.
