Temperature sensor: New programmable RTD’s from Turck


Process Control/Instrumentation & Sensors

All programming functions can be performed from the unit's top. The recessed 'enter' key prevents changing settings unintentionally.

Turck has introduced a new line of programmable RTDs (resistance temperature detectors) that reportedly feature high precision measurements, fast response time, and easy programming steps.

The TS400 and TS500 product lines are platinum RTDs using Pt-100 technology, which the company chose for its reputed precision, repeatability, and fast response. Sensors can be mounted directly or remotely and can handle a range from -50 to 500 °C (-50 to 932 °F). Several mounting options are available, including compression fittings, thermowells and tri-clamp.

Programmability features include two switch points with analog voltage and current outputs. Turck says programming is simple using pushbuttons and onboard display. They can display Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, or ohms, and the readout can be inverted electronically. The sensor's compact design simplifies mounting, using an IP 67 environmental rating and M12 eurofast cable connection.
