One percent increase in sensing accuracy can generate significant financial impact, what can 80-90% do? With progression in data analytics and AI, better, more accurate sensing will play a significant part in the future of IoT and preventative maintenance. 

 

"This low-drift development in mineral insulated (MI) type K and N sensor technology not only gives a major leap forward in low-drift temperature measurement performance but also provides a sensor that can increase the confidence directly in those everyday industrial temperature measurements." - Trevor Ford, CCPI Europe Ltd.  

 

LDC is especially useful in thermocouple applications that require:

 

  • High temperature measurement.
  • Nearly identical looking to standard MI.
  • Highly accurate sensing with low drift.
  • No need to change any processes in existing applications to accommodate the new product.
