The temperature transmitter from ifm electronic can operate in ambient temperatures between -25 and above 70°C.
The TD series comes ready to use, with no programming required because of the inclusion of IO-Link.
On delivery, the TD is scaled for 0-100°C (unless the 0…300°F version is ordered), and the IO-Link facility allows the user to take advantage of the full -40 to 150°C range.
The series is a fully hygienic instrument with ifm “look & feel”, and M12 connector, and housing in full 316 stainless steel, with an IP69K seal.
With its small, one piece housing and added value of a local display at the price point of a blind unit, ifm’s TD series is believed to be unique under the hygienic temperature transmitters.
The connection options present further advantages of the TD series; it can be wired as a three-wire or as a two-wire loop-powered device.
Using the IO-Link facility would require a four-core connection in order to access all the possibilities that IO-Link offers.
Available process connections cover Tri-Clamp (1.5” and 2”) as well as a G1/2” hygienic conical fitting, with more to follow. The probe length options include so far five lengths of 30, 50, 100, 150, and 250mm.
The TD series will operate in an ambient temperature between -25 and plus 70°C, and withstand a pressure range of -1 to 160 bar.
