Pipe-mount Temperature Sensors Stabilize Environmental Effects

Pipe-mount Temperature Sensors Stabilize Environmental Effects
TE Connectivity

The IH-492 Series low cost, compact pipe-mount temperature sensors promise to reliably measure the harsh, varying environments of HVACR systems. Features include a 36-in., AWG#24 PVC-insulated wire that provides signal integrity. A radius-shaped housing minimizes external environmental effects and maximizes contact against the pipe. A proprietary molding process produces a dense NTC ceramic and a high thermal conductivity copper enables accurate measurement across a temperature range of minus -40ºC to +105ºC. The copper construction also helps eliminate galvanic corrosion due to dissimilar metals. A thermally-conductive epoxy protects the sensing element while a glass coating on the sensors further enhances ruggedness and reliability. The sensor assembly is available as standalone or with a custom-designed, copper-clad steel clip that facilitates installation onto the copper refrigerant tubing.
