The SA1-RTD surface-mount RTD temperature sensor mounts on flat or curved surfaces and provides Class A accuracy for critical temperature monitoring applications. Based on a 2 x 2 x 0.8 mm thin-film platinum RTD and supplied with bare 3-wire leads as a standard configuration (connector optional), itcan be customized for use in a wide variety of applications. The sensor can be easily applied with its selfadhesive
backing, or positioned permanently with OMEGABOND™ cements.
Use the SA1-RTD to monitor chip, heat sink, and environmental temperatures in electronic devices; check piping or ducting temperatures;monitor motor and transformer core heat; test insulation capabilities; and check other applications in which surface and/or gradient temperatures need to be monitored or controlled.
Is the self adhesive backing easy to remove after a month or so of use? We need to monitor temperatures on piping for a month or so, then the sensors will need to be removed. Working temperature while monitoring will be around 90 degrees c

Thank you for your inquiry. The entire assembly can be removed carefully, but the self-adhesive properties will be lost.

Does anybody have a recommendation for temperature sensing device to connect to this sensor? One that could connect to a computer, ideally.

You may want to consider the SA1-RTD-80 with the HH804U handheld meter along with the software HH800-SW (windows software and USB cable) which allows for real time data logging to a PC.
For extensive data logging a DC power jack is available
HH804U Meter $173.88 each in stock
Comes complete with HH804-CONNECTOR (one per channel), protective rubber boot,
NIST certificate (no points), 4 “AAA” batteries, and operator’s manual.
HH800-SW $23.18 in stock
Windows software and USB cable (USB models only)
HH800-ADAPTOR $20.09 each in stock
If a thermocouple can be considered in place of a RTD , for example the SA1-K-72- SRTC is a good option. We offer the Thermocouple Data logger with USB interface the OM-EL-USB-TC which accepts a J, K or T type thermocouple. This plugs directly into a USB Port – No USB cable is required
and the specifications sheet is: https://br.omega.com/omegaFiles/das/pdf/OM-EL-USB-TC.pdf
Thank you for your question.
