Compact temperature sensors with plug-and-play options

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

This company is expanding its range of fluid sensors with IO-Link-capable sensors for flexible and reliable process temperature measurement. Both compact devices are equipped with an integrated temperature probe (TS700), as well as processing and display units (TS720) for connecting resistance thermometers or thermocouples (photo). The TS+ sensors meet the growing demand for straightforward commissioning and high plant availability. This is supported by the robust stainless-steel housing with touch operation instead of mechanical operating elements, which are ideally suited for use in harsh industrial environments thanks to IP67 and IP69K protection. Besides process values, the IO-Link interface provides the user with a large volume of condition-monitoring data for smart IIoT applications. To simplify commissioning, the TS+ devices also feature automatic detection of the output type (PNP/NPN or current/voltage), as is already offered by the PS+ and FS+ pressure and flow sensors. Compact TS700 devices operate in a measuring range from –50 to 150°C. Depending on the temperature probe connected, type TS720 processing and display units can even cover temperature ranges between –200 and 1,800°C. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co.
