Smart sensor for condition monitoring

25 June 2018

For use in condition monitoring applications STEGO's Smart Sensor CSS 014 measures two important parameters - temperature and humidity - and helps to maintain an optimal climate.

Condition monitoring is all about paying attention to detail. The key parameters within the switch cabinet should always be under control. The permanent measurement of temperature and humidity in the switch cabinet is an important element in preventing condensation, which leads to corrosion and eventuallly failure of components. STEGO's CSS 014 Smart Sensor combines three functions in one compact device: a sensor, interface and transmitter. It can measure ambient temperatures with high sensitivity within a range of -40 to +60 °C while also monitoring the relative humidity range from 0 to 100% RH.The CSS 014 Smart Sensor transmits its data as a standardized analogue 4-20 mA signal which can be further processed and the measured values can be converted within a control or monitoring unit. Due to high measuring accuracy and signal strength connection wires with a maximum length of 30 m can be used. Thus, scenarios beyond the classic control cabinet application can be implemented. In principle, any larger, spatially sealed application with a defined atmosphere is suitable.The sensor unit is thermally decoupled and encapsulated with a circumferential seal which ensures high vibration resistance and ingress protection to IP20.
