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: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
