Design for contact temperature testing of irregular surface
I'm working on a design to measure the temperature of a surface. I'd like the design to be removable; eg the sensor clamps on to the surface in question.
The sensor itself will most likely be an RTD, possibly a thermocouple, but in both cases- they are effectively a single point of measurement, and I'd like to increase their measuring area.
Is it standard to bond these sensors to a larger thermal mass, which would then touch the surface to measure? I'm having a hard time finding a product to compare this to.
