Que.2 Full form of RTD is
  1. Resistance Thermistor Detector
  2. Resistance Temperature Detector
  3. Round Temperature Detector
  4. Resistance Thermometer

✔ View Answer

Option 2: Resistance Temperature Detector

Que.3 Consider the following statements about RTD.
(i) The spool of wire is chosen chemically and dimensionally stable in the sensing range.
(ii) The wire is made thick for high strength.
  1. Only statement (i) is correct.
  2. Only statement (ii) is correct.
  3. Both statements are correct.
  4. Both statements are wrong.

✔ View Answer

Option 1: Only statement (i) is correct.

The wire used in RTD is made thin and long to increase resistance.
Large resitance range can be easily converted into electrical signal that can further be used to increase accuracy.
Que.4 Platinum is preferred for RTD because
  1. It is chemically stable at high temperatures.
  2. Platinum resists oxidation.
  3. It can withstand severe environmental conditions.
  4. All of the above

✔ View Answer

Option 4: All of the above

Que.5 Identify the incorrect statement about limitation/s for Nickel and Copper wire in case of RTD.
  1. They are expensive.
  2. Thin wires of high chemical purity can be obtained.
  3. Wire length needed is long due to high conductivity.
  4. None of the above.

✔ View Answer

Option 1: They are expensive.

Advantage of copper or nickel wire is that, they are inexpensive.
Que.6 Consider the following statements.
(i) Thin film RTDs are relatively small and inexpensive.
(ii) Platinum used in RTD has small temperature range.
  1. Both statements are wrong.
  2. Both statements are correct.
  3. Statement (i) is wrong.
  4. Statement (ii) is wrong.

✔ View Answer

Option 4: Statement (ii) is wrong.

Que.7 RTD and Thermistors are _____ transducers.
  1. active and analog
  2. passive and analog
  3. active and digital
  4. passive and digital

✔ View Answer

Option 2: passive and analog

Que.8 Consider following statements about thermistors.
(i) They have limited resistance range only upto few ohm.
(ii) Available in a wide range of sizes, shapes and also as probes of various dimensions and shapes.

Only statement (i) is correct.

Only statement (ii) is correct.

Both statements are correct.

Both statements are wrong.

✔ View Answer

Option 2: Only statement (ii) is correct.
