Short summary
Temperature measurement in engine and exhaust systems is necessary for thermal protection of parts and optimizing the combustion process. The basic idea of this novel sensor concept is to use thick-film technology on component surfaces. Different standardized and especially nonstandard material combinations have been produced for validation of this concept. Application-oriented measurements took place in the exhaust system of a test vehicle and were compared to standard laboratory conditions.
