What is a high-temp therm. resistor called?
September 28, 2010
I need a sensor I can stick into a hole drilled into the side of a coal stove. Something topping out at about 1000 degrees F or about 500 degrees C (or so).
I did the digikey thing but my search term is too broad and with 10,000 items including the term "thermal", I am not getting anywhere. I can say that anything called a "termisistor" tops out at about 200 degrees C so I know that is not what I need, but I simply don't know what the name of the part I do need, is. Bottom line, I need a doo-dad to measure a fire topping out at about 1000 degrees and be read by an ADC. Gimme what you got.
