New product family extends temperature sensor portfolio

08.04.2013
- 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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
