Inductive sensors specifically for use in extremely hot and cold temperatures are now in the offing.

Components and products supplier Treotham Automaton has introduced inductive sensors specifically for use in extreme temperatures.

The INRT450 inductive sensors for hot and cold zones from Wenglor ensure reliable detection of metallic objects in extreme temperature ranges from – 60°C to +450°C.

The durable sensors are reliable, high-performance products that can be used in a broad range of applications including food and beverage, according to Treotham.

As they are manufactured without silicone, they can also be used in cold zones such as cold storage facilities and in PWIS-sensitive areas.

The interchangeable sensor head is made of ceramic, making it capable of continuously withstanding extreme heat and cold, whilst accurately detecting metallic objects at the same time.
