How Do Temperature Sensors Work?

Answer

There are several types of temperature sensors available, some of them include, Thermocouples, Thermistors. Some of them can sense the changes in the temperature when they are distances away. They use the plank law to measure temperatures, which deals with amount of thermal radiation released by a heat source. By using these radiations one can determine the temperatures.

How Does a Temperature Sensor Work?
Contact sensors work in many ways. Thermocouples work using the Seebeck effect, which has to do with the temperature change in electrical circuits. Basically, the temperature is read from these sensors by taking measurements of their voltage outputs.... More »
