Bimetals and RTDs: How Do They Work and What's the Difference?

Son of Samurai


Bimetals show up all over the appliance world in all kinds of applications. Resistive Temperature Devices (RTDs) are widely used in ovens and ranges and are commonly called "oven temperature sensors." Both are devices that respond to temperature, but beyond that, they work completely differently and serve different purposes. Watch this short excerpt from one of our many technical education webinar recordings to learn all about these devices!

The full webinar covers all the common temperature sensing and reaction devices we encounter in the field: bimetals, RTDs, NTCs, PTCs, thermocouples, and more. Every tech should know what's taught in this webinar recording. Premium tech members may watch the full webinar at the link below:
