Temperature sensors are a simple instrument that measures the degree of hotness or coolness and converts it into a readable unit. But, have you ever wondered how the temperature of the soil, boreholes, huge concrete dams or buildings is measured? Well, this is accomplished through some of the specialised temperature sensors.
It is a device, typically, a thermocouple or resistance temperature detector, that provides temperature measurement in a readable form through an electrical signal.
Temperature sensors measure the heat of hydration in mass concrete structures. They can also be used to monitor the migration of groundwater or seepage. One of the most common areas where they are used is while curing the concrete because it has to be relatively warm in order to set and cure properly. The seasonal variations cause structural expansion or contraction thereby, changing its overall volume.
Due to the harsh working environment, the material requirements for temperature sensors will be relatively high, especially for control panel. For this reason, membrane switch wiil usually be applied as the control panel.
