Accurate temp sensor for copper pipe

Post by geoff » Fri Dec 01, 2006 6:54 pm


I'm looking for some accurate temp sensors (+/- 0.1K) that can be attached (clamped) to a copper pipe - I can then insulate the sensors. The means of connected these back to a computer (cat5 preferable) and the method for extracting information (non Windows based) are important.

What's available?

Hi, If you want to log recorded temperature over time with high accuracy I would suggest you take a look at the PT-104 here:
This is a 4 channel device that connects via RS232 to a PC and in addition to the supplied Windows based logging software, there are drivers and examples for users wishing to write there own custom software. Sensors use a differential input and so CAT5 cable could be used if required.
I hope this is of some interest.
