The RTD-830 is designed for use as a surface temperature sensor. The aluminum housing allows for fast transfer of heat to/from the sensing element. The housing contains a clearance hole for a #4 mouting screw so the pt100 sensor can be bolted or cemented into place. If bolt mounted, a small amount of Omega's OT-201 High Conductive Paste placed between the housing and surface can improve thermal response. The sensor includes a 100 ohm Class A DIN Platinum element connected to 1 meter (40") of PFA insulated & jacketed cable and a 3-pin miniature connector.
