iTHERM TrustSens self-calibrating temperature sensor

Award-winning sensor technology helps reduce risk, improve process safety in critical applications

Endress+Hauser has developed the world's first self-calibrating temperature sensor technology specifically designed for hygienic applications that require strict compliance to FDA regulations and GMP rules. The sensor unit combines a standard Pt100 RTD sensor with a highly accurate fixed-point reference element that makes use of the Curie temperature effect to generate a calibration signal. The award-winning design helps to minimize risk and measurement uncertainties in critical processes.
