New compact temperature sensor with easy three-button handling and optimised readability © 2016 ifm electronic gmbh
One feature of the new compact TN temperature sensors from ifm electronic. Control monitor and process connections are integrated, adapter / mounting kits as well as Pt100 / Pt1000 probe sensors are no longer required. This allows much easier integration of the sensors into the process. Installation time is minimised. With each order, installation and handling times as well as the user's stock are reduced. This saves time and money.
The new sensors feature integrated process connections (G 1/2, G 1/4, 1/2 NPT, 1/4 NPT, M18 x 1.5) with pressure rating up to 400 bar and a measuring range of ‑50…150 °C. The temperature sensors also have two switching outputs or one switching output and one analogue output (4...20 mA or 0...10 V). Other innovations are the easy 3-button handling as well as the 2-colour display.
Readability was also optimised. The display can be switched from an indication of "red" to an alternating indication of "red / green" for process values. So, switching states can be highlighted or an independent colour window can be created. The rotatable sensor head allows precise reading from any position. Especially for temperatures up to 600°C, ifm electronic offers the TR temperature evaluation unit for Pt100 / Pt1000 sensors.
