Self-monitoring temperature sensor

23 March 2020

The TCC self-checking temperature sensor from ifm electronic has been created for use in processes where accurate temperature control is essential and deviations could have costly implications.

The sensor continually monitors its own performance and, if an internal failure occurs or excessive drift is detected in measurement accuracy, it gives a visual warning and sends an alert message to the plant control system so that action can quickly be taken to minimise the impact of the problem.

The temperature sensor maintains an accuracy of ±0.2 K across its whole measuring range of -25 to +160°C with good measuring stability between calibrations. It also uses IO-Link technology to ensure that the measured results are delivered accurately to the control system, even with long connecting leads and in noisy electrical environments.
