OUTPUT VOLTAGE TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER

OUTPUT VOLTAGE TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER

OUTPUT VOLTAGE TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER

(OP)
I have some questions on what internal components could affect the Output Voltage of a Temperature Transducer.  In particular causing the output to spike and than go to 0 or just to go directly to 0 or no voltage output.  My background is mechanical, but I have been tasked with solving this one and electronics is not my strong suit.  Any information would be greatly appreciated to help me at least get pointed in the right direction and concentrate my search on the correct components.

Thanks,

Major

RE: OUTPUT VOLTAGE TEMPERATURE TRANSDUCER

I am asuming an analog device.  Can't come up with anything except wiring problem - opens, shorts, grounds. At high temps, themocouples can get frail fast. But, no inherent mechanism fitting your case from the several types of thermal sensors I know of. High levels of RF interference  can effect readings.
More info abut your app might help somebody here with an idea  - type of sensor, application, etc.
