Meggitt has released its Wilcoxon Research® HT (high temperature) series of vibration sensors that provide reliable, continuous output for condition monitoring applications where temperatures reach 150° C. The high performance sensors are field-tested with mean time before failure (MTBF) of 25 years. The units are 35% smaller in size and 35% less expensive than previous models, according to the company.
To offset the effect of high temperatures on internal electronics, internal components are rated at 200° C for consistent bias output voltage levels over the entire temperature range.
Rugged housings and hermetic sealing protects against ground loops and RF interference, promoting long-term stability. Small casings enable easy installation on paper dryers, rollers, pumps, steam generators, and other machinery operating in high temperatures.
The HT sensors are available in ultra-compact housings, top-exit, and side-exit for flexible cable connectivity.
