IFM Electronic has released its updated, faster TAD series temperature sensors, which come in two probe lengths, 33 and 87.5mm.

The use of two sensor elements that monitor each other in the process ensures that a developing sensor drift is immediately detected and reliably diagnosed.

Cyclical calibration is not necessary and if one element fails, the process continues with the second measuring element.

Via the diagnostic output of the sensor, possible error states are directly transmitted to the higher-level controller.

A failure warning and switch-off threshold can be defined via the software.

Providing a standardised 4-20mA analogue signal enables processing in any common controller.

The sensor covers a temperature range of -10-150C and is resistant to extremes of -25-170C for a short time.

The evaluation accuracy is 0.2K in the range of -10-100C and 0.3K for 100-150C.

The faster switching means the units are more suited to installation in thermowells, also available as accessories from IFM Electronic.

The integrated adapter thread enables hygienic connection to all common process adapters.

The shape of the probe and the high-temperature range allow cleaning (CIP) and sterilisation when mounted (SIP).

The completely closed and welded high-grade, stainless-steel housing guarantees protection rating IP 69K.

The selected design reduces the buildup of dirt and can be cleaned on all sides.

ifm electronic specialises in the application of advanced electronic technology to produce innovative and effective solutions for industrial control applications.
