Agilent Technologies

is offering a series of

measurement tips

Control Engineering provides additional help, below.

The first measurement briefs focus on making temperature measurements, including:
-Making Good Thermocouple Measurements in Noisy Environments;
-Practical Hints for Making Fast Scans of Multiple-Sensor Systems; and
-How to Select the Correct Temperature Sensor for your Application.

Past tips from Control Engineering on temperature measurement include:
-Contact sensors may offer a price advantage, non-contact sensors are more durable because they are not subject to contact wear and could have a lower life-cycle cost.
-Sensors have shrunk, analysis hardware and software continue to improve, and prices for comparable performance have dropped.
-For monitoring processes in real time, mounted sensors provide stability and consistency than handheld options.
