Nickel conductors provide good resistance to vibration and temperature shocks. Because of the simple interchangeability of the parts, the RTD nickel conductor cable can be customized to meet customers specifications.
When an RTD is brazed onto the conductors, this RTD cannot be used for temperatures above 450°C. Beyond this temperature the brazing starts to soften and the RTD loses its contact with the conductors. Nickel conductors can, however, be perfectly welded onto the RTDs which provides a much stronger contact with the RTD. This setup allows nickel conductors to perform well at temperatures above 450°C. Furthermore, whereas copper oxidizes easily, which will result in fluctuation in the measurement readings,. nickel is more inert chemically and thus not prone to oxidation, which will ensure stable readings for a longer period of time.
Nickel conductor cables are hardened at a higher temperature than copper. Which softens the conductors and makes them more workable as the material is more soft and bendable.
