mTS015 Intrinsically Safe Brass Temperature Sensor


The mTS015 is a solid state digital single wire temperature sensor in a threaded brass housing.

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

Straightforward to install in the field with no calibration required. Typically this brass temperature sensor is used as a rub sensor in part of a brass rub block assembly to detect belt misalignment on conveyors and bucket elevator legs.

  • 3/8” x 16 threaded brass rod, complete with single jam nut

  • 6’ (2m) of durable UL 2517 TPE cable with UV protection
  • Intrinsically Safe when used with the mBC083 Bus Converter
  • Each sensor has a unique permanent digital address
  • RJ11 modular jack for easy connection to CMC Field Interconnect Box (FIB)
  • No calibration required

Product Description

The mTS015 is a digital single-wire temperature sensor enclosed in a threaded brass rod for use in harsh environments. The mTS015 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

Temperature sensing on rub blocks used on belt conveyors and bucket elevators.
