Minco Introduces TT463 Series Integrated Sensor/Transmitters
Innovative one-piece design delivers 20% cost reduction for HVAC applications.
Minneapolis, MN, January 11, 2012—Minco, a global provider of flexible heaters, flex circuits, sensors and instruments for advanced applications, today announced its new TT463 Series integrated sensor/transmitters. The new sensors, used in heating, ventilation & air conditioning (HVAC) applications to sense the temperature of air streams in ducts and plenums, combine an RTD sensing element with transmitter capability in a single package. The one-piece design is more cost-effective than non-integrated products, reducing costs typically by 20%. It is also simpler to install as it requires less wiring, with power and signal provided through a 4–20 mA current loop connection.
“Our development activities at Minco focus on delivering new products that have a positive impact on our customers’ real-world challenges,” noted Wayne Olson, director of Minco’s sensors & instruments business unit. “By integrating the RTD sensing element and the transmitter in the TT463, we are able to provide our customers with the functionality and performance they require at a significantly reduced cost. The development of the TT463 is a testament to the knowledge and experience of our engineering team, and the value they provide to our customers.”
TT463 Series integrated sensor/transmitters are available now in point sensing, rigid averaging or bendable averaging configurations. Each style can be configured with a variety of insertion lengths, and for a variety of temperature ranges. Transmitters are housed in a standard 0.250” (6.35 mm) OD stainless steel probe casing integrated with a junction box. The integrated technology of the TT463 can also be combined with custom packaging and mounting to meet specific customer requirements.
