Word forms: (regular plural) response times
noun (Electrical engineering: Computing and control) The response time of a sensor is the time it takes for it to respond from no load to a sudden change in load. ⇒ The thermocouple has a much faster response time and so gives a more representative indication of the heating element temperature. ⇒ In fuel cells, the electrical response time of the power section is fast, as it is associated with the speed at which the chemical reaction can restore the charge that has been drained by the load. ⇒ The response time of a sensor is the time it takes for it to respond from no load to a sudden change in load.
