TE1 - individually configurable temperature measurement system
Article Type: New products From: Sensor Review, Volume 28, Issue 3
With the TE1 range (Figure 7), Baumer’s product segment process instrumentation offers a temperature measurement system which measures process temperatures from −50 up to 250°C. The TE1 can be configured individually according to customer needs. It is also available with 3 A approval for hygienic applications.

The TE1 range has a stainless steel field housing. The system is available with different industrial process connections as well as hygienic connections. Thus, it can be used in the industrial area like chemical engineering, water treatment or energy management, as well as for the pharmaceutical industry or the food and beverage industry.
The flexibility of the system offers a wide range of configuration possibility to the customer. Thus, fast response sensor tips for accurate and fast measurements of process temperatures are available: Standard DIN A or B, single or double elements connected via 2-, 3- or 4-wires can be supplied according to customer request.
Besides, the sensor tip and the process connection, the customer can also configure the sensor tube dimension, the accuracy of the sensor element, an optional cooling neck, the electrical connections, certificates and the sensor tube lengths.
The customer can also choose between a ceramic terminal block and one of four configurable temperature transmitters (FlexTop) which communicate either with a standard 4 to 20 mA output, a HART or a Profibus PA interface. If an external temperature transmitter is needed, Baumer offers a range of units with the FlexTemp series.
A surface mounted version of the TE1 sensor is available for processes where a direct media contact is unwanted.
