Temperature

Verifying temperature is the second most important aspect of any compressor operation. As with pressure, the basic form of measurement is a simple temperature gauge. The construction of the gauges is quite varied, ranging from a bimetallic device to the filled systems. When transmission is involved, the sensor becomes quite simple, taking the form of a thermocouple or a resistance temperature detector (RTD). The monitor does the translation from the native signal to a temperature readout or signal proportional to temperature.

Temperature switches are also part of the temperature instrument family. Although not sophisticated, entire compressors are influenced by the temperature switch. It is now becoming more popular to take a thermocouple signal to the computer and generate a switch closure as part of the computer signal.
