Semiconductor temperature sensors are manufactured using technology that allows these devices to be produced efficiently and inexpensively. As a result, these devices have properties designed to easily interface with many other types of semiconductor devices, such as amplifiers, power regulators, buffer output amplifiers, and microcontrollers.
The fast thermal response time of these sensors enables fast error correction in real-time digital control loops, which can help maximize control speed for higher productivity and safety. This also allows for faster adaptation to control motor position and velocity with a low-latency response. The high accuracy of these sensors helps reduce maintenance costs and system downtime, as systems become more reliable and control is more efficient. The ability to operate systems closer to the thermal limits increases system efficiency and allows for immediate failure detection and reaction.
