TP temperature plug - the alternative to the head transmitter

(PresseBox) (Essen, ) With the TP temperature plug, ifm electronic offers a lowcost alternative to conventional head transmitters.

The TP temperature plug is a Pt100 / Pt1000 measured signal converter to provide analogue values (4...20 mA).

In contrast to the head transmitters, the temperature plug features two standardised M12 connections reducing complex mounting considerably. Temperature sensors with M12 connection can be screwed without any tools. The chance of any error or more complex mounting occuring during the wiring of head transmitters is a thing of the past.

The transmitter features a measuring range that is scalable from -50...300 °C via IO-Link. The green status LED signals the operating status.

Full potting of the housing ensures high vibration resistance of 20 g (10...2000 Hz) and prevents penetration of moisture. This is proven by protection rating IP 67.

Thanks to its small size and the 4wire evaluation, the TP temperature plug is especially suitable for harsh applications since it can be installed in a safe location via a connection cable.
