IP68 temperature sensors

IP68 temperature sensors
The lead and sensing element of these temperature sensors from ATC Semitec are made of the same material to prevent water ingress.
The lead and sensing element of these temperature sensors from ATC Semitec are made of the same material to prevent water ingress. To avoid problems with temperature sensors caused by the ingress of moisture, especially at the interface between the lead and the sensor, ATC Semitec has developed a range of TPE-encapsulated sensors with leads and sensors of the same material to create a waterproof barrier rated to IP68 and capable of operation at up to 105°C. These cost-effective sensors are said to ensure absolute integrity when used outdoors (with solar panels, for example) and with underfloor heating and other HVAC applications. Options included stiff leads and a high-temperature version rated up to 150°C. These sensors are double insulated at rated to 4 kV.
