Thermal Sensors

Description

The Temperature Sensor block represents an ideal temperature sensor, that is, a device that determines the temperature differential measured between two points without drawing any heat.

Connections A and B are thermal conserving ports that connect to the two points where temperature is being monitored. Port T is a physical signal port that outputs the temperature differential value.

The block positive direction is from port A to port B. The measured temperature is determined as T = TA – TB.

Ports

The block has the following ports:

A

Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.

B

Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor negative probe.

T

Physical signal output port for temperature.

Introduced in R2007b
