Linearization of Temperature Measurements

Temperature is the most widely measured value in process control. Across a wide variety of industries from large-scale chemical manufacturing to small labs, accurate temperature measurement is relied upon to ensure such things as yields, quality, safety and compliance. The most common methods of measuring temperature in an industrial process are by either thermocouple or RTD (Resistive Temperature Devices), with each having its own strengths and weaknesses, depending on the conditions being measured. Neither thermocouple nor RTD sensors are linear in nature. This means that their signal output is not directly proportional to the temperature being measured, with distinct curves
