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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
