High Accuracy 1/10 DIN RTD Pt100 Probe
Our high accuracy Pt100 temperature sensor is ideal for use as a calibration reference sensor. We use a 1/10 DIN sensing element within the probe which has an RTD accuracy of +/-0.03°C at a temperature of 0°C and is available as either a 3mm diameter sensor or a 6mm diameter.
When using high accuracy sensors, depth of immersion is critical to ensuring measurements are as precise as possible. The sensing length of this sensor is 15mm so we recommend a minimum depth of immersion of 150mm.
The plain stem of the probe is made from 316 stainless steel and the tip is TIG welded closed to give a pressure tight housing for the sensor. We offer standard diameters of 3mm and 6mm in various standard lengths to suit your needs. The 3mm high temperature sensor has a pot seal to accommodate the cable.
The high accuracy temperature probes are fitted with 2 metres of high performance PTFE (Teflon) screened lead which is practically chemically inert and is suitable for the full operating range of the sensor. The plated copper braid screen provides mechanical protection as well as providing the opportunity for electrical screening should it be required.
The silver-plated copper conductors are very easy to solder, making fitting a connector extremely straightforward. Process Parameters can take care of this for you should you require assistance.

FAQ about High Accuracy Temperature Probes
What is a High Accuracy Temperature Sensor?
A high accuracy temperature sensor refers to a temperature measuring device that is designed to provide highly precise and reliable temperature readings. These sensors are engineered with advanced technology and stringent calibration processes to ensure minimal measurement errors and high repeatability.
An accurate temperature sensor is capable of providing temperature measurements with a narrow margin of error, often within a fraction of a degree. They are designed to minimise the impact of external factors, such as ambient temperature fluctuations or electromagnetic interference, which could affect the accuracy of the readings.
Applications that require precise temperature monitoring, such as scientific research, industrial processes, medical equipment, and quality control systems, often rely on high accuracy temperature sensors. These sensors play a critical role in ensuring optimal performance, process control, and maintaining the integrity of temperature-sensitive applications.
What is a Pt100 Temperature Sensor?
A Pt100 temperature sensor is a type of resistance temperature detector (RTD) that uses platinum as its sensing element. It has a resistance of 100 ohms at 0°C, with its resistance changing predictably with temperature, making it suitable for accurate temperature measurements in various applications.
What is a 1/10 DIN Temperature Probe?
A 1/10 DIN temperature probe refers to a type of temperature probe that meets the 1/10 DIN standard for accuracy and performance. The DIN standard, also known as the “Deutsches Institut für Normung” (German Institute for Standardisation), sets guidelines for various technical aspects, including temperature measurement.
The term “1/10 DIN” indicates the level of accuracy and precision of the temperature probe. The DIN standard specifies that the temperature probe should have a tolerance or deviation of 1/10th of the temperature range being measured. For example, if the temperature range is from 0°C to 100°C, a 1/10 DIN temperature probe would have a maximum tolerance of ±0.1°C.
Probes meeting the 1/10 DIN standard are designed to provide highly accurate and precise temperature measurements. They are often used in applications that require strict temperature control, quality assurance, and scientific research where small temperature differentials are crucial.
