Robust sensors with protection rating IP 65 to IP 69K for flexible use at media temperatures -40…85 C°
High reliability even under extreme conditions
Full-metal sensors are used wherever an application presents particular challenges to the mechanical design. In the food industry, for example, not only rapid changes of temperature but also aggressive media used for daily cleaning stress the housing material. The same applies to applications in machine tools and plants where the sensors are permanently exposed to coolants and lubricants. In the steel industry or in automotive industry, however, weld spatter is not only a strain on the sensing face but also on the threaded sleeve. In this context the full-metal design with non-stick coating and the robust sensing face are the ideal solution to ensure a safe operation. Moreover, the robust stainless steel design offers optimum protection against abrasive parts in metal-cutting machining. Additionally, the compact and short design permits use even in the smallest of spaces.
