PT5x0 RTD Temperature Sensor with Teflon insulated leads - Pace Scientific

PT510/520 Temperature Sensor

  • PT510: 200°C (392°F) continous temperature rating

  • PT520: 260°C (500°F) continuous temperature rating

  • Ideal for surface temperature measurements

  • PT510 includes adhesive backing for easy mounting

  • Low thermal mass for fast response

  • Excellent moisture resistance

Pace PT510 and PT520 Sensors consist of a thin-film 10,000 ohm platinum element encased in a high-temperature laminate.  The PT510 includes a pressure sensitive "peel and stick" adhesive backing.

Please Note: Standard 100 to 1000 ohm RTDs are not compatible with Pace Data Loggers.

PT510 / PT520 Extension Cable

If longer leads are required, extension cable can be spliced to the PT510 or PT520.  We recommend 24 AWG copper two-conductor stranded cable for extensions of up to 150 ft. (45 meters).  For longer extensions, use 22 gauge two-conductor stranded cable.  Acceptable splicing methods include wire nuts, crimp connectors, hand twisting and taping, or solder. For cable runs longer than 30 feet, we recommend using shielded cable.
