Basic Physical Types of Temperature Sensors

In general, there are two sensing methods:

1. Contact

Contact temperature sensors are in physical contact with the object or substance. They can be used to measure temperature of solids, liquids or gases.

2. Non-contact

Non-contact temperature sensors detect temperature by intercepting a portion of emitted infrared energy of the object or substance, and sensing its intensity. They can be used to measure temperature of only solids and liquids. It is not possible to use them on gases because of their transparent nature.
