1000 Ohm Bearing Sensor
What are 1000 ohm Sensors?
They are all types of RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) sensor that are made from Platinum. The Pt100 sensor has a resistance of 100 ohms at 0°C and is by far the most common type of RTD sensor. The Pt500 sensor has a resistance of 500 ohms at 0°C and the Pt1000 has 1000 ohms resistance at 0°C. These sensors are normally fitted into some type of protective sheath or mounting to form a probe, and these are commonly referred to as PRT (Platinum Resistance Thermometer) or RTD probes.
