Darts high temperature sensors – pt500 platinum resistor – gas temperature measurement

Car manufacturers face increasing challenges. Technological requirements are continuously stepped up due to the demand for performance, safety, efficiency and clean emissions. Sensor-NITE accepts this challenge. It is our mission to achieve higher efficiency through an optimal control, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions.


Sensor Element PT-500 platinum resistor
Measurement Principle The resistance of the PT-500 element increases with temperature based on the positive temperature coefficient of platinum electrical resistance
Temperature Range Continuous: -40°C to 750°C Peak: 800°C
Accuracy ± 2.5°C from -40°C to 280°C
± 0.9% from 280°C to 750°C (including 500 hours ageing at 750°C)
Connector Connector chosen by customer



For Cost Optimized High Temperature Applications:
Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC)
Particle Filters (DPF)
Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR)
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)

But Also Applicable for:
Charged Air Measurement

Protect Engine and Exhaust Components
Diagnose Systems for OBD (e.g. DPF, SCR, EGR)
Control System Operation (Regulate Temperature Windows of Systems)


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
Optimal cost versus robustness properties by use of stainless steel material
Fast response time by reduced tip diameter and thermal decoupling especially at high gas velocities
High absolute accuracy up to 750ºC by thermal decoupling of measurement element and housing
High linearity
Flexibility in insertion depth: 25mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 70mm
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
