What Is A PT1000 Temperature Sensor?
Pt1000 sensors (1000 ohm temperature sensors) are the second most common type of platinum resistance thermometer. Often resistance thermometers are generally called Pt 1000 RTD sensors, even though in reality they may not be the Pt1000 RTD sensor type. Pt refers to that the sensor is made from Platinum (Pt). 1000 refers to that at 0°C sensor has a resistance of 1000 ohms (Ω). Pt1000 probes are used over pt100 probes in two-wire applications as Pt1000s make lead resistance less significant.
