M-FX platinum resistance temperature detector (PRTD) is a hysteresis-free thin-film RTD that performs over a operating temperature range of -200 to 500C. The M-FX is resistant to temperature shock and offers long-term stability, vibration resistance, and reliability. The M-FX PRTD combines the ideal curve characteristics of ceramic wire-wound RTDs with the vibration resistance of glass wire-wound RTDs. Applications include use with chemical, industrial, energy management, and laboratory equipment.
