Transducers for temperature

Measuring transducer for temperature (thermocouple)

VTK5

Measuring transducer VTK5

  • Measuring transducer for temperature, thermocouple
  • Simple application; for harsh environments
  • Compact design for mounting side by side
  • Fine adjustment of the measuring range via sealed integrated trimming potentiometer
  • Operating status indication via integrated LED

Description

Measuring transducers of type VTK5 convert signals from a thermocouple into standardised output signals. They are mounted on G rails or top-hat rails. The sensor input and supply voltage for the output signal are galvanically isolated. Its compact and robust design, as well as the relevant shipbuilding approvals, make this product ideal for marine applications.
