    Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) are one of the more popular temperature sensors, and are also known as resistance thermometers. These temperature sensors work on the principle of resistance-temperature interrelation. The RTDs feature a pure metal wire, which may be copper, nickel, or platinum, wrapped around a ceramic or glass core. However, platinum is the preferred material for the temperature probes...
