Krohne’s new OPTITEMP TRA-H6x/-C6x temperature sensors are designed for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry and come with 3A, FDA and EHEDG approvals.
The new line includes standard temperature assemblies and compact designs and a fast responding sensor tip with reduced heat conducting error for high accuracy at short immersion depths. They are available with replaceable Pt100-inserts, or non-replaceable Pt100 for even faster response. All devices are designed to be vibration proof and rated IP69.
Process connection options include a modular adaptive system using G½ hygienic process connection as its basis, in steel to steel and steel to PEEK versions and hygienic process adapters are also available. For the US market, there is a welded clamp connection in two sizes and 3A approval for clamp sensors is in preparation.
All devices feature 4–20 mA output and options for OPTITEMP TRA-H6x include HART, Bluetooth and NFC. As an alternative to the commonly used cable gland, an M12 connector is available. Wireless configuration, monitoring and basic verification is possible via OPTICHECK Temperature Mobile App.
