Frequently asked questions

Is the output temperature or resistance linear?

The temperature-measuring transducers linearise the temperature characteristic of the connected sensor. A Pt 100 / Pt 1000 sensor changes its resistance with the temperature. However, the change is not linear over the temperature range, which means that without linearisation a crooked characteristic curve would result.

The built-in linearisation means that a measuring signal is made available on the output, which changes proportional to the temperature.
