Thermal Sensors

  • Temperature Sensor block


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.


The block has the following ports:


Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.


Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor negative probe.


Physical signal output port for temperature.
