Home » Products » Isotech Thermocouple Standards Platinum/Palladium
The Isotech Thermocouple Standards Platinum/Palladium (Pt/Pd) are manufactured by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), which developed a new physical mechanism for relieving the mechanical stress caused by the difference in thermal expansion of Pt – wires and Pd – wires. This eliminates the fragile coil usually used with this type of thermocouple.
Platinum/Palladium thermocouples are more expensive than Platinum/Platinum rhodium types but benefit from superior performance in both stability (less calibration) and accuracy. Gold and Platinum (Au/Pt) thermocouples offer the best performance but are limited to a maximum temperature of 1000°C. These Pt/Pd thermocouples have a lower drift than Platinum/Platinum rhodium (Pt/Pt-Rh), with higher operating temperatures than the Gold and Platinum Au/Pt thermocouples. They are suitable for a variety of applications including transfer standards. The Isotech Platinum/Palladium (Pt/Pd) thermocouples have a temperature range up to 1500°C.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
