A high temperature sensor – platinum resistor – resistance temperature sensors

The design of the TS200-G is based on the original TS200-A, it uses the same sensing element. The electrical characteristics & dimensions are exactly the same as for the TS200-A, which makes it 100% interchangeable. This sensor is designed for applications that almost never exceed 900°C. This allowed using different materials. By result, in the temperature range from -40° up to 900°C, this sensor will offer the same performance as TS200A and TS200F. The TS200-G has been in production since 2012, and just like the original TS200-A, proved itself to be accurate, quick measuring, resistant to high temperature and with a good thermal shock resistance. It is functional over a wide temperature range without this affecting the performance during the lifetime (accuracy, step response, etc).

This sensor is mostly used in Diesel particle filters and other downstream applications.

Sensor Element PT-200 platinum resistor
Measurement Principle The resistance of the PT-200 element increases with temperature based on the positive temperature coefficient of platinum electrical resistance
Temperature Range -40°C to +900°C (continuous) 1,000°C (survival)
Accuracy ±2.5°C from -40°C to 280°C
±0.9% from 280°C to 900°C (including 500hrs ageing at 750°C)
Connector Connector chosen by customer



For Temperature Applications Up to 900°C:
Diesel Turbo Chargers

Protect Engine and Exhaust Components
Diagnose Systems for OBD
Control System Operation (Regulate Temperature Windows of Systems)


Planned for 2014 SOP; successor of TS200F
Thin Film Platinum temperature sensors are a proven technology for exhaust gas temperature measurements with many applications running for all levels of emission standards worldwide
Fast response time with open housing especially at high gas velocities provides optimal control
High absolute accuracy up to 900ºC by thermal decoupling of measurement element and housing
High linearity
Flexibility in insertion depth: 25mm, 35mm, 50mm (more information can be found at the tailor made sensors section)
Straight and bended configurations for rear housing, 0º to 120º to facilitate installation on the engine (more information can be found at the tailor made sensors section)
Fail safe
