Expert’s answer: RTD or thermistor or thermocouple?

Sure do, there are different advantages in terms of RTD or thermistor or thermocouple. Let’s start with your first question, though. Thermistors are fairly delicate and can only measure temps up to 500 degrees Celsius, so that’s false. Resistance temperature detectors go to 649, which still falls short of your needs.

Therefore, I recommend thermocouples because they come in materials that can withstand up to 2315 degrees Celsius. Most manufacturers offer the remote option as standard, so you should have no trouble installing your temperature transmitter. And going wireless is a good idea to eliminate cable damage from the high temps.
