In many applications the temperature of windings has to be monitored continuously. The Pt-100 Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are used for temperature sensing, measurement and control of these windings. Higher HP rating motors use RTDs.
The Pt-100 RTDs are used widely to monitor the winding temperature of Electric Motors and Generators. The RTDs are used in motor winding overhang like thermistors. Generally motors of larger rating use flat strip type RTDs (called Slot RTDs), which can be fitted in the winding slots.2-wire / 3-wire RTDs are available.
