BLUE PETER SERIES surface mount temperature sensors with a flexible body allow monitoring of objects with complex contours and shapes. These are especially well suited for monitoring motor end turns, conduit runs. Motor housings and other areas where probe type, embedded or other invasive
style temperature sensors might be awkward to mount without affecting equipment integrity.
Available in your choice of either a Kapton® or Silicone Rubber body these sensors can be mounted almost anywhere that temperatures do not exceed 250°C (482°F).
Resistant to tearing, cracking or cuts, Kapton®, is an organic polymer providing high levels of resistance to many solvents, oils, radiation and fungus. Standard bonding methods can be applied. Being somewhat transparent adds to Kapton’s versatility. Sensors with silicone rubber bodies are rugged, moisture and chemically resistant and are easily bonded or cemented to the surface desired.
When the exact location of a change in temperature on sensitive equipment is difficult, or even impossible, to predict, the BLUE PETER SERIES line offers a solution. To satisfy these needs, we offer both “Spot" and "Averaging” styles of RTD sensors.
