Temp sensor

Hi, Should the transistor on the top of the temp sensor get red hot? Mine does, Temps showing up in my project in excess of 200 Celsius.

Thanks Steve

Well you don't say what "the" transistor is nor what "the" sensor is, and nor do you say what the temperature really is. Presumably it's not 200C but we don't actually know.

But the answer to your question is probably "no".... but we need more details. If it's a transistor without a base resistor, for example, it could be hot to the touch.

if anything is red hot, it can be bad wiring, double check your circuit with schematics.
