April 16, 2014 - Available in ultra-compact housings, top-exit, and side-exit for flexible cable connectivity, Wilcoxon Research® HT (high temperature) series provides continuous output for condition monitoring applications where temperatures reach 150°C. Internal components are rated at 200°C for consistent bias output voltage levels over entire temperature range. Carrying 25 year MTBF rating, series features rugged housing and hermetic sealing that protect against ground loops and RFI.

Germantown, MD – Meggitt’s Wilcoxon Research® HT (high temperature) series of vibration sensors provides 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. Wilcoxon sensors provide continuous cost savings through affordability and reliability.

Extreme temperatures can cause sensor degradation and corrosion, requiring frequent replacement or calibration. To offset the effect of high temperatures on internal electronics, the durable 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 series offers lasting reliability when monitoring rotating machinery in high temperatures,” said Steve Wichtendahl, President of Wilcoxon Research® sensors. “Customers in the paper, oil and gas, plastics, steel and power generation industries will appreciate the outstanding performance offered by our cost-effective sensors.”

The HT sensors are available in ultra-compact housings, top-exit, and side-exit for flexible cable connectivity.
