Researchers at New England Instrument Co. have developed a new type of temperature sensor which is capable of providing a ratiometric voltage output for temperature measurements up to 650 degree C. The sensor reuqires no supporting amplifiers or signal conditioning electronics. An accuracy of + or - 3% has been achieved over a temperature range from ambient to 650 degree C. Automotive applications of the sensor are expected to include exhaust temperature measurment for closed-loop engine controllers. The design of the temperature sensor is predicated on the combination of a high temperature bimetallic actuator and a translating potentiometer.
