PTS Temperature sensors, available in case sizes 0603, 0805 and 1206, offer precise temperature measurements over a wide temperature range. PTS characteristics remain stable over time due to its thin film technology where a homogenous film of platinum is deposited on a high grade ceramic body. Terminations for the PTS are pure tin on nickel plating, with proven immunity of the plating to tin whisker growth under extensive testing. PTS sensors support lead (Pb)-free soldering and are suitable for processing on automatic SMD assembly systems in large-scale applications using wave, reflow, or vapor phase processes. A special coating protects the sensor element against electrical, mechanical, and climatic impacts. The sensors comply with the CEFIC-EECA-EICTA list of legal restrictions on hazardous substances and are tested in accordance with IEC 60751 and IEC 6006.
