New product family extends temperature sensor portfolio

- Introduction of the SITRANS TS100, TS200 and TS500 product lines
- Modular design opens up a wide range of applications
- Supports the HART, PROFIBUS PA and Foundation Fieldbus communica-tion standards

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has extended its range of temperature sensors to include the SITRANS TS product family. 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.

Siemens has considerably expanded its range of temperature sensors with the addition of the extensive SITRANS TS product family, which is suitable for a wide range of applications.

It not only supports the central communication standards HART, PROFIBS PA and Foundation Fieldbus, but is also certified under ATEX and IECEx, which enables the devices to be used worldwide. SITRANS TS is therefore suitable for both basic and highly demanding applications throughout the entire process industry.

The modular SITRANS TS product family consists of the three product lines SITRANS TS100, TS200 and TS500. They are suitable for a wide range of applications in the process industry, such as in the fields of 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.

The SITRANS TS100 and TS200 product series are available as cable and compact thermometers. This makes 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 +1,100 degrees Celsius. 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 solutions 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.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
