Thermal Anchoring Carbon Ceramic Thermometers
Owing to the relative simplicity of the thermal anchor and mounting method, no special skills or techniques are required to effectively employ CCS sensors in a real system and accuracy to within 0·1K or better is easily achievable. This allows the sensors to be used as industrial technology for use in serial production of commercial systems with a level of performance suitable for the most demanding of applications.
CCS sensor users are provided with application notes describing optimal methods of fixing for a variety of situations. To aid application, CCS sensors can be supplied in three forms:
- CCS sensor only
- CCS sensor mounted to an EQUITHERM thermal pad
- CCS sensor + EQUITHERM + Manganese wiring (4 wire system)
The benefits of using EQUITHERM pads with CCS sensors include reduced risk from damage during fitting (we mount the CCS sensor and check at RT & 77K) and simplified fitting to the cryostat or magnet assembly. Also, EQUITHERM pads practically remove all self heating losses.
