The temperature sensor is a platinum resistor Pt100 in a tiny ceramic carrier. It is fitted in a slender titanium tube. This delicate tip is resistant to a pressure of 600 bar but it is extremely sensitive to knocks and inflection. Therefore the tip is surrounded by a titanium perforated shield tube, which is mounted onto the standard flange. The platinum resistor is connected in 4-wire technique.
