Smart Sensor Performs Condition Monitoring

For condition monitoring in a large number of different applications in which regulated processes take place, STEGO's Smart Sensor CSS 014 measures temperature and humidity and helps to maintain an optimal climate.

 

The permanent measurement of temperature and humidity in the switch cabinet is an important element in preventing condensation, which leads to corrosion and thus failure of components. For this, the CSS 014 combines three functions in one compact device: a sensor, interface and transmitter all in one. It measures ambient temperatures with high sensitivity within a range of -40°C to +60°C while keeping a close eye on the relative humidity range from 0 to 100% RH.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

The CSS 014 Smart Sensor transmits data as a standardized analog 4 mA to 20 mA signal. With this signal, users can further process and convert the measured values within a control or monitoring unit, e.g., a PLC. Due to high measuring accuracy and signal strength connection wires with a maximum length of 30 m can be used. Thus, scenarios beyond the classic control cabinet application can be implemented. In principle, any larger, spatially sealed application with a defined atmosphere is suitable.

 

The sensor unit of the CSS 014 is thermally decoupled and encapsulated with a circumferential seal. Rewards of this effort: a high vibration resistance and compliance with the IP20 degree of protection. Operating voltage is 24 Vdc with a maximum power consumption of 1.8W (typically 0.4 W).
