Temperature sensors

Thermocouples and resistance thermometers

Thermocouples and resistance thermometers are used as electronic temperature sensors to measure, control and record processes in (research) laboratories and industry. For more then 40 years Tempcontrol has supplied and produced temperature sensors on customer specification as well as in standard constructions. Because of our extensive experience with temperature related issues, we are able to find the best, cost-effective solutions for our customers. Complex problems are always a challenge to us.

Resistance thermometers

Platinum resistance thermometers are very accurate and stable temperature sensors, suitable for temperature measurements between -260 °C and + 650 °C. A resistance thermometer consists of a single or duplex resistance temperature detector, fitted into a protection sheath and supplied with a fixed cable connection, connector or connection head. The resistance temperature detectors mostly used are Pt 100, Pt 500 and Pt 1000 Ohms at icepoint, in 2, 3 or 4 wire connections.


Thermocouples consist of 1 – 2 or 3 thermocouple pairs, fitted into a metal or ceramic protection tube and a fixed cable connection, connector or connection head at the cold end.


A thermocouple pair consists of two metal conductors of different alloys.


Thermocouples have a quick response time and can be used over a wide temperature range from -270 °C to + 2300 °C.

Custom made temperature sensors

The temperature sensors that you see on our website are just a few of the options that are available. We specialize in customer-specific temperature sensors. This means that we are happy to think along with you to ensure that the right sensor enters your process.

A lot is possible, for example various insertion lengths, diameters and process connections but also in material use and construction. Because we produce the sensors ourselves in our workshop in Nootdorp, we are also very flexible in terms of production time.

We are happy to discuss the options with you. Please contact us for more information.
