mTS012-4 Intrinsically Safe Temperature Sensor Probe Style


The mTS012-4 is a solid state digital single wire temperature sensor in a sealed 4” long stainless steel tube for use in harsh industrial environments. The sensor is also available in 6” probe length (model mTS012-6).  Other custom sensor probe lengths are also available. Consult factory for availability, price, and lead time. 

The sensor is accurate to 0.5°C over the –10°C to +85°C (14°F to 185°F) temperature range, and usable from –67°F to +257°F (-55°C to +125°C).

Straightforward to install in the field with no calibration required. Typically this style of temperature sensor would be used on bearings, gearboxes, motors and fans as part of a condition-based machine temperature monitoring system.

The mTS012 is a solid state, digital single-wire temperature sensor in a sealed stainless steel tube for use in harsh environments. The sensor is available in 4” and 6” standard lengths. The mTS012 sensor’s recommended operating range is -40°F to +225°F (-40°C to +105°C) and it is rated as Intrinsically Safe when used with the mBC083 Bus Converter.

The temperature sensor uses a single-wire data communications bus. Up to 32 sensors can be connected in parallel to a single Bus Converter. The sensor bus has a fully specified cabling system complete with terminal assembles and uses low cost CAT5 cabling and punch down blocks for easy termination. Each sensor has a unique serial number identifying it to the Bus Converter. No sensor calibration is required.

Typical Applications include temperature sensing on bearings, motors and other general industrial equipment applications.
