A temperature sensor is a device that detects and measures hotness and coolness and converts it into an electrical signal. At TE Connectivity (TE), we design and manufacture a broad portfolio of temperature sensors – including our NTC thermistors, RTDs, thermocouples, and thermopiles – designed for efficiency and easy installation, with capacity to reliably integrate technology that responds to human behavior.
With a broad product portfolio and an experienced team of engineers, we are well placed to meet the needs of the marketplace. Learn more about our temperature sensor portfolio in our "Temperature Sensors - Now You See Them, Now You Don't" trend paper.
Temperature Sensor Applications
In HVAC/R systems, our digital temperature sensors help monitor industrial heating and cooling systems and control smart thermostats while thermocouples provide feedback to boiler controls in the home. In commercial aircraft, our NTC thermistors measure air and gas temperature, in a miniature and lightweight design that save space in small systems. In household stoves and appliances, our platinum temperature sensor can help amateur chefs prepare a meal perfectly – and ensure they store it safely. In microwave ovens, our thermopile sensors can measure temperature without making contact with food. With TE temperature sensors, you gain the value of our deep experience in helping customers develop technology that can respond to the way people live.
