Wire Length Guide

Actual maximum lead wire length is dictated by total loop resistance and the presence of electrical noise. Allowable loop resistance is dictated by the equipment used to measure the sensor’s signal. The tables below have been generated using assumptions of allowable loop resistance. Final determination of suitability rests with the customer. Green zones indicate estimated lead wire lengths that will allow the temperature sensor to still function properly with limited accuracy loss. The exact accuracy loss is dependent on a number of application specific factors.
