Pentronics is a leading temperature sensor manufacturer located in Gunnebo in Sweden. The company develops, manufactures and sells thermocouples and Pt100 resistance thermometers (RTDs), cables and connectors, and also processes connections and market IR-radiation pyrometers, transmitters as well as instrumentation like indicators, controllers, loggers and temperature calibration equipment. Pentronic’s temperature sensors are found in equipment all over the world.

Pentronic and PR electronics have been working together for more than twenty years. Pentronic values PR poducts’ ability to solve their customers’ problems and the quality and ease of use of PR devices. Per Bäckström, Sales Engineer at Pentronic, explains:
Exceptional EMC performance
“The biggest advantage of our partnership is that we can trust PR. The products are highly reliable and able to solve the problem for the customer. Let me give an example… in one of our projects we had issues relating to a noisy environment. The electrical noise affected the accuracy of the temperature measurement. We then decided to use a PR transmitter and that solved the problem”.
Easy to configure
Per Bäckström is not only satisfied with the performance of PR’s products – he also likes the flexibility and usability of the transmitters:
“One of our customers was introduced to one of PR’s temperature indicators. He was a bit surprised when he discovered that he didn’t have to use the manual to make configurations”, Per Bäckström adds.
How PR electronics delivers Perfomance Made Smarter to Pentronic:

We sincerely thank Per Bäckström at Pentronic for participating in this article and video.
PR electronics has always been a pioneer in EMC. In 1991, we created our own in-house EMC laboratory and since then we have made significant advancements in designing products for high EMC performance. PR is thus not depending on using shielded enclosures.
Through a combination of:
- sophisticated printed circuit board layout where wanted and unwanted signals are being intelligently routed and,
- filters protecting from DC to GHz – from uV to kV and from uA to A and,
- the fact that our EMC performance is a maximum deviation of 0.5% of the specified range
we guarantee that each product achieves our renowned EMC standards.
Beyond our rigorous design process, we also subject our devices to more stringent testing than many of our competitors:
- We test by 20V/m (the EMC Directive only says 10V/m).
- We test against A criteria (supply and output) and B criteria (input) mixing the toughest requirements for both emission and immunity.
The result is an exceptional EMC performance, ensuring stable and accurate signal conditioning throughout your process.
