Some conductive compounds containing conductive carbon nanomaterials dispersed in a piezoelectric polymer matrix for resistance temperature detectors have recently been investigated. The conductive carbon nanomaterials are carbon fiber, graphene, graphene oxide, porous carbon, silver NP and CNT, etc., and the polymer matrices are PVDF (Huang et al. 2018; Bang et al. 2019). Resistance temperature detectors are manufactured by coating the conductive compounds on interdigital electrodes with spinning and printing.
Standard tables show the voltage produced by thermocouples at any given temperature. This generation of a voltage, although small, means that thermocouples are self-powered and do not require an excitation current. Unfortunately, it is not possible to easily connect a voltmeter to the thermocouple to measure this voltage, as this creates a second unwanted thermocouple connection. To perform accurate measurements, a technique known as compensation for cold bonds is used. All standard thermocouple tables allow this second thermocouple joint, assuming it is kept at exactly 0 ° C. Maintaining an ice bath is not practical for most applications; instead, the actual temperature at the connection point of the thermocouple cables on the measuring instrument is recorded and compensated.
The transparency of the electronic touch sensors on the skin can be achieved by using PDMS with high transparency and other materials, which can guarantee the absorption of energy by mechanical equipment on solar energy. The large-scale flexible temperature sensor is expected to enter all areas of human production and life and really serve humans, which is the future direction of development. Depending on the storage devices, including transistors or diodes, FRTCs can be classified as passive matrix FRTC and active matrix FRTC. Passive matrix FRTCs have a simple structure, usually an electrode substrate detection material, an intercroped structure consisting of a detection layer, an electrode and a substrate. Active matrix FRTCs have a complex structure that includes organic transistors, gates, thermistors, encapsulation, lines and substrates. Active matrix FRTCs are equipped with transistors or diodes for each unit (Kaltenbrunner et al. 2013).
This allows the loading process to be optimized, the life of the components subject to thermal loads to be extended and safety-related functions to be implemented. These NTC temperature sensors are also noticeable thanks to high measuring precision and short response times. They are ideal for monitoring thermal processes involved in the charging process.
Unlike RDs, thermistors consist of an oxide suspension rather than pure platinum. By using mixed oxides, thermistor manufacturers can characterize and create temperature curves for the specific application. In this case, the mixed materials prevent the sensor from increasing the linear temperature.
The flat palm connected the encapsulated flexible temperature sensor assembly with a heart-shaped aluminum container and the cold water (15 ° C) fills in the container. Distribution of the temperature measured in the flat palm by means of a set of flexible temperature sensors. The stretched palm connected the encapsulated flexible temperature sensor to a heart-shaped aluminum container and the cold water (15 ° C) fills in the container. Distribution of the temperature measured in the stretched palm by means of a set of flexible temperature sensors. The stretched palm closed the matrix of encapsulated flexible temperature sensors with a heart-shaped aluminum container and the cold water (15 ° C) fills in the container. The PI, PET, PDMS and polyethylene naphthalate substrates offer excellent thermal insulation.
Flexible thermistors on flexible surfaces are made of micro-electromechanical system technology, flexible technology, printing technology and coating technology. Metal welding blocks are believed to act as electrodes for sensors to connect conductive and transmission signals. Structure, material, manufacturing and performance are important factors in flexible temperature sensors. 208V Developing flexible temperature sensors with digitization and intelligence remains a major challenge. Previous studies showed that the structure, material and production process have major influences on sensor performance (J Mittemeijer, 2011; Nosbi et al. 2010; Chen et al., 2017a). It should be noted that this trend is consistent with the design of flexible temperature sensors.
Self-repair can extend the life of the self-repairing flexible temperature sensor. Self-healing must take place under ambient conditions without external triggers or stimuli. Although researchers have achieved self-repair of flexible temperature sensors, their stability and sensitivity need to be improved. Flexible temperature sensors can be applied to robots, medical health, military, smart production, aircraft safety and everyday life and have broad application prospects. Flexible temperature sensors have many functions, such as high flexibility, high elasticity, high sensitivity, high resolution and lightweight. Flexible temperature sensors have made progress in flexibility, sensitivity and multifunctional.
Among various functions, flexible temperature sensors can be divided into an active matrix flexible temperature sensor, a self-powered flexible temperature sensor, a self-healing flexible temperature sensor and a self-cleaning flexible temperature sensor. Tsao Group (Shih et al., 2010) presented a new method to manufacture a passive matrix FRTC matrix. They distributed a graphite PDMS connection in interdigital copper electrodes printed on flexible polyimide films. The flexible temperature sensor matrix with interpanded structure of electrode substrate detection material shown in Figure 2 has 64 detection cells in an area of 16 cm2. His research showed that graphite powder offered composite sensitivity at high temperature. In compounds with different graphite volume fractions, it noted that the 15% graphite powder compound is suitable for on / off devices, while the 20% graphite powder provides a sufficiently dynamic range to continuously detect temperature change.
