PRESS RELEASE : 670 °C Secondary Reference Temperature Sensor

AMERICAN FORK, UT—Hart Scientific, a division of Fluke Corporation and a world leader in temperature calibration products and services, announces the addition of the model 5609 Secondary Reference Temperature Sensor to its line of high-temperature platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs). The 100-ohm sensor has a temperature range of –200 °C to 670 °C, with short-term repeatability and long-term drift of ± 0.01 °C at 0 °C.

The 5609 may be ordered in either one-quarter-inch or six mm diameters to match the demands of an international market. One-quarter-inch-diameter PRTs come in sheath lengths of 12, 15 or 20 inches. Six-millimeter diameter PRTs come in sheath lengths of 300, 400 or 500 millimeters.

In addition, the 5609 may be ordered with a certificate of compliance or an optional NVLAP accredited calibration from the manufacturer. Options include sensor characterization or full system calibrations that include the performance of the sensor and readout together. This reduces the cost of ordering system calibrations. Both types of calibrations are performed in the Hart Scientific laboratory, NVLAP lab code 200348-0. The option to purchase without a calibration adds value for international customers preferring traceability to their local NMI, as well as to those with less demanding calibration requirements. Applications include laboratory calibration and calibration in manufacturing facilities in biotech, medical device, pharmaceuticals, aerospace and process industries.
