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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
