Inductive Sensors for Extreme Temperatures

Temperatures of +100C and more are not uncommon in process plants in the chemical and petrochemical industries. To cater for such harsh ambient conditions, Pepperl+Fuchs have expanded their product range with a high-temperature double sensor for positional feedback on valves.

The sensor will tolerate temperatures up to +150C and can be fitted directly to standardized pneumatic drives. An actuator that has been specially developed for this purpose can also withstand temperatures up to +150C.

For temperatures as low as -50C, Pepperl+Fuchs offers sensors that can be installed in positional feedback switch boxes. The wide temperature range of these sensors extends from -50C to +150C.
