Siemens Industry is extending its range of temperature sensors to include the SITRANS TS product family, suitable for a wide range of applications. The new resistance thermometers and thermocouples are designed for universal use. The device line has a modular design, and offers a large range of sizes, materials, sensors and transmitters. It not only supports the central communication standards HART, PROFIBUS PA and Foundation Fieldbus, but is also certified under ATEX and IECEx, enabling the devices to be used worldwide. SITRANS TS is suitable for both basic and highly demanding applications throughout the entire process industry.
There are three product lines in the modular SITRANS TS product family: SITRANS TS100, TS200 and TS500. They are suitable for a wide range of applications in the process industry, such as chemicals, oil, gas and power. The product portfolio is clearly structured. Certain designs are certified under ATEX and IECEx as being flameproof for gas and dust, intrinsically safe, and Ex n. This has advantages for globally active users, especially in the fields of logistics, inventory management and documentation.
SITRANS TS100 and TS200 product series are available as cable and compact thermometers, making them especially suitable for universal use, such as detecting the temperatures of machine bearings. The compact insertion thermometers can also be used in confined spaces, and their mineral insulated design makes them not only flexible, but also resistant to vibrations and high temperatures up to +1100degC.
The SITRANS TS500 product line is designed for applications with low to high process stresses. A selection of protective tubes made of solid or welded pipe material is available for this purpose. The user can use a wide range of process connections, connection heads, sensor types, transmitters and displays to configure individual systems for a process. The optional 4 to 20 mA transmitters, HART, PROFIBUS PA and Foundation Fieldbus enable devices to be easily integrated into the operating tools of process control systems, such as SIMATIC PDM.
Dale Snow from Siemens Industry comments: "This introduction of increased temperature sensor options gives users the benefit of flexible solutions suited to a range of applications across industry."
