    500 degree Celsius is a high temperature. Finding affordable sensors that can sense temperatures at this range may be a little tough.

    What accuracy are you looking for in your sensor?

    accuracy doesn't matter very much ,a rough indication of the temperature is good enough for me.

    What, are you trying to measure? - Like, are you going to dip the sensor somewhere? Or is it something like a flame?

    @vikas : as i have mentioned before accuracy is not important so no point in spending big bucks on that temp gauge.
    i tried a diy thermocouple but the values are unstable ,anyone tried it with success ??

    Hey!

    RTD Type Temperature Sensors are Pretty Good and not expensive.

    3 Wire RTD type Temperature Sensor you can have with in 200.00 to 300.00 Rupees and it will be for -200Degree to 850Degree Centigrades..

    Accuracy is also good <0.5%

    Hope this will help.
