Temperature sensors

The TM-950 Series temperature sensors use an open (exposed) thermistor design for faster response to temperature fluctuation than with closed (encapsulated) designs. The sensors can be used to monitor temperatures in any nonconductive fluid. Glass is fused inside the sensor housing, and inductive soldering around the thermistor leads to produce a hermetic seal. Leakage is eliminated while taking advantage of the quick responsiveness of an open, direct contact thermistor.

The sensors provide a referenced temperature sensing range of 32 to 100°F (0°C to 38°C) and an overexposure capability range of –40 to 250°F (–40 to 125°C). Standard pressure rating is 450 psig (31 bar). Wetted materials include zinc-plated steel, nickel-plated steel, Teflon, ceramic, tin, and soda-lime glass. Standard termination is IP65, 18 AWG, PTFE insulated flying leads.
