High-specification temperature probe offers extended performance at competitive cost

Variohm EuroSensor’s ETP-AM-SP-IMC temperature probes feature 316 grade stainless steel housings with M10 screw-in interfaces and integral Deutsch IMC ‘Ultem’ connectors for maximum durability and high performance.

The compact probes are available in both PT100/1000 and NTC10K sensor versions and are claimed to offer improved working and short term temperature range ratings over competitively priced alternatives. Both versions encapsulate the sensor element in a 4mm probe tip to ensure a rapid response time and furthermore the materials and construction are UL compliant.

Variohm EuroSensor has primarily designed the ETP-AM-SP-IMC series for high accuracy coolant and/or oil temperature monitoring on performance motorsports and special-purpose vehicles. But with its fast response time, wide environmental temperature range and resilience to moisture, oils and chemicals, the sensor is equally suited to demanding medical and industrial applications, such as medical autoclave equipment or high-hygiene processing machinery.

The PT100/1000 sensor version has options for PT100B and PT1000A elements with working temperature from -55 to 180°C - whilst the NTC10K version temperature range starts at -40°C.

Variohm EuroSensor has also released a version of the probe with an integral FEP screened cable assembly which does not offer all of the advantages of the IMC connector for applications requiring less demanding range and environmental durability requirements.
