Inductive sensors for extreme temperatures

Treotham Automation has introduced new sensors  from Wenglor for the detection of metallic objects in extreme temperature ranges from -60°C to +450°C. The sensors can be used in a broad range of applications from automotive and metalworking industries to food and glass industries. They can also be used in cold zones such as cold storage facilities and in PWIS sensitive areas, as they are manufactured without silicone.

The interchangeable sensor head is made of ceramic, making it capable of continuously withstanding extreme heat and cold, whilst accurately detecting metallic objects at the same time. They offer a long service life of 7-10 years, with cable lengths of 5-20 metres.

The INRT450 inductive sensor has a use range of -60°C to +450°C and a switching distance of 25mm, and the INTT25 and INTT40 have a use range of -10°C to +250°C with a switching range of either 25mm or 40mm. All models include a patented maintenance output which quickly draws attention to maintenance and repair cycles, preventing costly system downtime.
