    Can a two-wire RTD be used with a three- or four-wire instrument?

    A:

    The use of two-wire resistance temperature detectors with three- or four-wire instrumentation depends on the application, as this configuration adds additional uncompensated resistance to the system and seriously impairs the accuracy of the RTD. Consult the manufacturer for the proper RTD to use with its instrumentation for specific applications.
