Default RTD pinout

I have a RTD sensor with panel mount quick disconnects from Auber. The sensor end came pre-soldered with pin 1=red, pin 2=white and pin 3=red. is this correct?

What I'm trying to confirm is that pin #2 at the RTD goes to terminal #5 at the PID (2352).

The red wires go to pins 3 and 4. The white wire goes to pin 5.

^^correct.

btw the two red leads are connected together. some controllers compute the resistance of the lead wires in order to make the RTD calculations more accurate. if you measure the resistance between the two red leads, this is the number you subtract from the resistance measured between red+white leads to get an accurate reading.
