I want to test a temperature sensor by heating it to 100 Celsius and above, possibly using an induction heating module.
I am concerned there may be immediate and long term negative effects on the sensor and its output signal. Can anyone offer advice here please?
The sensor is an LM87QDCK (smd). The induction heating module is the popular 'Low Voltage 120W ZVS PSU and heating coil' found on ebay.
I am housing the sensor in a stainless steel tube 5mm diameter, this will be inserted into the coil, which will be operated at a reduced power.
The whole of the sensor will be in the induction zone, inserted for about a minute.
I wonder if the output signal of the sensor IC will be affected by the inducted energy.
Also, if any effects will be only found after a long period - shortened life for example.
This is a picture of one of the induction heaters:
