This cylindrical pt100 platinum resistance thermometer type number PR1616 was made by RTD Products (a division of Thermocouple Instruments Ltd). Resistance thermometers use changes in resistance for temperature measurement. The resistance element may be either a platinum wire if extreme precision is required, or a semiconductor (thermistor) for high sensitivity.
