cable probes & temperature sensors for different applications

Cable probes

Cable probes for different applications

Compact RTD and TC thermometers with non-detachable cable for plug-in or screw-in connection. Cost efficient sensors for use in many processes and laboratory applications.
A cable probe is easy to install and provide a high operational safety due to reliable and accurate temperature measurement in common processes.

Portfolio description

Cable probes are specially suited to temperature measurement in machinery, laboratory equipment and plants in gaseous or liquid medium like air, water, oil, etc.
Without additional thermowell the probe sheath is directly in contact with the process medium. This enables the cable probe to detect rapid temperature changes fast and accurate.

In the process automation two measurement principles for temperature have asserted themselves as a standard:

RTD - Resistance temperature detectors: Measuring principle

The RTD sensor changes the electrical resistance with a change in temperature. They are suitable for the measurement of temperatures between -200 °C and approx. 600 °C and stand out due to high measurement accuracy and long-term stability. The sensor element most frequently used is a Pt100. As a standard, Endress+Hauser RTD sensors fulfill the IEC 60751 accuracy class A.

TC - Thermocouples: Measuring principle

A thermocouple is a component made of two different metals connected with each other at one end. An electrical potential (thermoelectric force) is caused due to the Seebeck effect at the open end if the connection and the free ends are exposed to different temperatures. With the help of the so-called thermocouples reference tables (see IEC 60584) the temperature at the connection (measuring junction) can be concluded.

Thermocouples are suitable for temperature measurement in the range of 0 °C to +1800 °C. They stand out due to the fast response time and high vibration resistance.

Benefits

  • High flexibility through user-specific insertion lengths and variable process connections

  • Fast response time

  • Cost efficient
