Applied Measurement Australia now distributes the TE Connectivity temperature sensors and who doesn’t want to know how hot they are? A temperature sensor is a device that detects and measures hotness and coolness and converts it into an electrical signal. TE Connectivity (TE) designs and manufactures a broad portfolio of temperature sensors – including the NTC thermistors, RTDs, thermocouples, and thermopiles – designed for efficiency and easy installation, with capacity to reliably integrate technology that responds to human behavior. With everyone and anyone wanting to measure the temperature, TE Connectivity designs and manufactures temperature sensors to meet your needs and application.

Some examples of the temperature sensors from the TE Connectivity portfolio include:


NTC is an acronym for Negative Temperature Coefficient. TE Connectivity (TE) is a leading designer and manufacturer of high precision discrete NTC thermistors, probes, and assemblies. An NTC thermistor is a temperature sensor that uses the resistance properties of ceramic/metal composites to measure the temperature. The full spectrum NTC sensors offer many advantages in temperature sensing including miniature size, excellent long-term stability, high accuracy and precision.

Platinum RTD Temperature Sensors

TE Connectivity’s (TE) platinum temperature sensors are designed to provide precise, stable measurement in extreme temperature applications. These sensors offer high value through proven design, ease-of-use, reliable performance and quick availability. Precise temperature measurements can be made in extreme environments. Whether you’re working on a new engineering design or optimizing an existing one, TE’s platinum temperature sensors are easy to use in many industries and applications. The linear output requires low engineering intervention and TE makes these sensors available quickly in most form factors.

Key features include:

  • Precise measurement in extreme environments
  • Ease of application and use
  • Engineered to withstand extreme temperatures -200 to + 600°C
  • International industrial standards (IEC 60751:2008)
  • Greater engineering efficiency due to linear output
  • Complete range for numerous applications

Thermopile Infrared (IR) Digital Sensors

TE offers thermopile infrared (IR) non-contact temperature measurement modules with digital output.

Thermopile Infrared (IR)  Sensors

Thermopiles are designed to measure temperature from a distance by detecting an object’s infrared (IR) energy. The higher the temperature, the more IR energy is emitted. The thermopile sensing element, composed of small thermocouples on a silicon chip, absorb the energy and produce an output signal. A reference sensor is designed into the package as a reference for compensation.
