Temperature Sensor Manufacturing by OMEGA™ Thermocouples, RTD's, and More

Precision Manufacturing
Our commitment to maintaining the leading edge through research development and state-of-the art manufacturing keeps OMEGA firmly at the forefront of technology. OMEGA's Development and Engineering Center (ODEC), located on the Connecticut campus, is home to OMEGA's design and engineering laboratories. All product designs are tested and perfected here prior to marketing. This state-of-the-art facility houses OMEGA's metrology lab and other quality control facilities. The testing that takes place here assures that you receive the best products for your applications. Once an OMEGA product design is perfected and tested, stock production takes place at our Bridgeport, New Jersey, manufacturing plant. Manufacturing image mapLocated just 22 miles from Philadelphia, this site houses OMEGA's advanced OMEGACLAD thermocouple wire production equipment along with an Award Winning Class 10 Clean Room for RTD Element manufacturing and a host of other computerized CNC milling machines, injection molding equipment, screw machines, braiders, extruders, punch presses and much, much more.

RTD (Resistance Temperature Devices) Platinum Thin Film Elements
OMEGAFILM™ elements are manufactured to meet the requirements of IEC Standard 60751. This standard uses "Classes" to define the accuracy and interchangeability for the elements, the basic resistance vs. temperature characteristics, temperature ranges and other technical information relating to the OmegaFilm RTD elements.
Table 1
Tolerance (C)Temperature Range
Class A = (0.15 + 0.002t)(-200 to 650C)
Class B = (0.30 + 0.005t)(-200 to 850C)
Class 1/3 DIN = ±1/3 (0.30 + 0.005t) t = Temperature C(0 to 200C)*
*Note: Since there are no temperature ranges for 1/3DIN and 1/10DIN, typical industry standards have been assigned.

Accuracy Classes
There are two accuracy "Classes" defined in IEC60751, they are: "Class A" and "Class B", there are other "Classes" not specified in IEC60751 that are used in industry, they include 1/3 DIN and 1/10 DIN.
These "Classes" are defined in Table 1.
RTD Probes and Assemblies
OMEGA offers a wide variety of probes in various configurations. The RTD probe is the most rugged form of RTD. A probe consists of an RTD element mounted inside a metal tube, also known as a sheath. The sheath protects the element from the environment.
Omega is the leader in thermocouple manufacturing! Omega offers standard and custom thermocouple configurations to meet the needs of all your temperature measurement applications. Omega makes it easy to configure a custom probe by providing you with our Probe Configurator. If your project is more complex, our Custom Engineering department can help.

The standalone thermistor element is relatively fragile and can not be placed in a rugged environment. OMEGA offers thermistor probes which are thermistor elements embedded in metal tubes. Thermistor probes are much more suitable for industrial environments than thermistor elements.
