Criteria for selecting the most suitable electrical temperature measuring point. — The temperature is one of the most important measured variables of a process medium and is predominantly monitored with electrical thermometers. But as simple as the task sounds, know-how is required when choosing the right sensor. We will give you some helpful tips.
