Italcoppie "TRE" Low Cost RTD Probes from the Instrumentation Group
The Instrumentation Group of Asheville, NC has introduced a new series of low cost, high performance Italcoppie® brand RTD probes. These rugged, long-lasting, cost-effective and accurate sensors provide a temperature measurement alternative for many applications.
The TRE series probes are constructed from a single Platinum 100 RTD sensor meeting IEC 751 Class B accuracy standards. The sensor is insulated with densely packed magnesium oxide and imbedded in a 3 mm O.D. shank formed from 316 stainless steel.
Shank lengths of 100, 150, and 250 mm (3.94", 5.91", and 9.84") are available. The resulting probe assembly is molded into a nylon terminal measuring 8 mm in diameter by 25 mm in length (.315" X .984"). The TRE probe is finished with a length of copper connection cable (22 AWG) covered with a silicon rubber insulation that provides protection up to 180°C (356°F). The connecting cable is available in 1,000 or 2,000 mm (3' 3" or 6' 6") lengths.
The resulting temperature sensing probe is strong, extremely flexible, watertight, and accurate. Suitable for measuring temperatures from -50° to 500° C (-58° to 932° F), TRE probes are ideal for a wide range of applications, including process monitoring and control, HVAC/R, water treatment, oil and gas production, and many others. The rugged one-piece construction is an advantage in hash environments and seals out harmful, corrosive liquids.
To further aid accuracy and facilitate recalibration, individual TRE probes are permanently etched with the exact resistance test value (in Ohms) at 0° C, loop resistance included. The manufacturing date and a traceable lot number are also etched in the probe shank surface.
Italcoppie TRE Series probes are available with tip adapters to fit existing wells or access ports, strap-on pipe adapters for accurate pipe surface readings, sliding compression fittings, and other accessories allowing quick and easy probe installation.
