A temperature measuring system which uses RdF Stikon nickel resistance thermometer elements BN-200T series was developed as the result of a recognized need for a high-output temperature transducer compatible with present four arm bridge systems. The RdF Stikon was tested in a bridge circuit designed to simulate a standard 350 ohm four arm bridge. The Stikon was found to be sensitive to strain. Since it was to be used on surfaces of unpredictable strain, a strain free method of surface attachment was developed. The complete system was tested and found to have a system error of less than 2 when used in the 32 to 432 F temperature range.
