The Airpax™ 5024 series are custom temperature sensors designed to meet your applications needs. Immersion probes generally used to sense and monitor temperature changes in applications requiring the sensor to be immersed in a media (air, water, oil, fuel, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid, and the like) while maintaining the integrity of the sensor with regards to the elements. These sensor assemblies have the ability to monitor temperature changes, feed information to a microprocessor, and allow the microprocessor to make decisions based on predetermined readings. The devices can also be used to drive a gauge or certain sensors with extreme changes in output with temperature can be used to pull in and drop out relays. Various package styles and termination are available.
Surface sensing assemblies are generally used in controlled environments where severe conditions will not come into play. The surface sensing device can signal a microprocessor and allow the microprocessor to turn on or turn off different peripheral hardware at different predetermined milestone points. Various package styles allow the surface sensing device to be used in power supplies, switching stations, generator sets, personal computers, and a wide variety of other applications. The device will sense the temperature of the surface it is mounted to and provides active feedback to its host.
Transmissions, brakes, hydraulic lines, manifold and heat exchangers require fluid and air temperature to be monitored at all times. Sensata has worked in these environments for many years and can provide package styles that are very responsive to these environments.
