In response to the biomedical industry demands for a high-accuracy, high-stability temperature sensor, Heraeus, a global and privately owned company that specializes in precious metals, materials, and technologies, sensors, biomaterials, and medical products, has developed the surface mount platinum Resistance Temperature detector (RTD) temperature sensing element that is uniquely suited for use in biomedical applications. One of the strain measurement devices SMD0805 RTD sensors offers the stability of thin film platinum RTD with the added advantage of a standard surface mount package. According to the company, when compared to other types of SMD temperature sensors, there SMD0805 Pt RTD offers superior post-soldering stability.
The company that holds a leading position in its global markets with product revenues of €4.8 billion and precious metal trading revenues of €21.3 billion, as well as more than 13,300 employees in over 120 subsidiaries worldwide, believes that a small package size of their product insures a fast thermal response time, and is ideal for applications where space is a premium. The products are available in both Pt100 and Pt1000 with possible applications which include temperature compensation in personal glucose testers, breathing sensors, diagnostic equipment, and patient temperature monitoring and management.
According to Bob Gliniecki, the key operating characteristics of this product include low drift, excellent long-term stability, high reliability, and ability interchangeable-ability.
