Abstract

The present paper is devoted to the technological problems connected with the construction, the choice of pastes and substrates, the screening process and the laser or abrasive trimming involved in the production of thick-film resistance temperature sensors designed by the authors. It also gives their main functional parameters and characteristics indicating the possility of the use of thick-film sensors not only in the measurement of temperatures, in a wide range, but also in determining the velocity and volume of flowing gases or liquids. On the basis of the relations investigated, the authors give examples of constructions of a few hybrid measurement devices for use in industry, transportation and medicine. Technical and economic aspects of the production of hybrid measurement devices are also dealt with.
