Most temperature sensing applications require sensing elements packaged in protective housings. To reduce development times and costs, Heraeus supports you with housed and pre-housed sensor options suitable for a wide variety of applications and mounting environments. Several of the sensor models are available from stock to facilitate a quick prototyping process. Smaller quantities for prototyping purposes are available through our distribution partners.
Sensor Assemblies: Sensors with housing, lead extension or cables
Sensor elements with long lead wires and lead extensions
For optimization in your volume assembly lines our RTD elements are available with platinum, platinum-coated nickel and nickel lead wires up to 100mm length.
For smaller volumes Heraeus offers a selection of high runner RTD elements with laser-welded wire extensions made from PTFE isolated stranded wires.
For larger requests and volumes Nexensos supports you with customized lead extensions. Lead attachment method and wire insulation material can be chosen to match the maximum required operating temperature and other application requirements, such as special long cable lengths. Our sales team will be happy to assist you in choosing the right lead extension for your application.
Housed and pre-housed Sensors
Heraeus offers a range of standard solutions with sensors pre-mounted in protective housings.
For larger requests and projects, customization is offered for housing size and material, including ceramic, metal, and plastics. Housing designs are adaptable to the specific requirements of the application. Robust encapsulation techniques ensure protection from the specific environmental and mechanical conditions of the application.
