Whether you’re running injection molding equipment or installing a new compressed air system, monitoring the assets’ in-line and ambient temperature is the best way to prevent overheating, and to maintain consistent product quality.
And while the desired result is identical, trying to accomplish it with the same style of temperature sensor can prove difficult. This is something that Parker has recognized since launching its line of SensoNODE™ Blue Sensors, and we have responded to the issue. Our engineers worked hard to design application-specific sensors so that this year, we could launch two new designs!
Probe temperature sensor
If your injection molding equipment is running too hot or cold, two seconds in the initial mold process are all it takes to jeopardize product quality. The SensoNODE Probe Temperature Sensor is specially designed with a three-inch long probe that’s perfect for measuring mold tooling temperatures to help users determine when the mold is properly warmed up and ready to go. This allows users to:
- Avoid part deformity, stress cracks and increased scrap
- Track real-time data on their mobile device
- Monitor ambient temperatures
- Quickly and accurately diagnose in-line temperature issues
The SensoNODE Probe Temperature Sensor provides consistently accurate measurements to help you track real-time data on your mobile device, monitor ambient temperatures, and diagnose in-line temperature issues.
Foot temperature sensor
With its special foot design, the SensoNODE Foot Temperature Sensor is ideal for mounting to various sizes of pipes and hoses. Like the Clamp Temperature Sensor, the Foot Sensor has a measurement range of -40°F to 257°F (-40°C to 125°C), and has all the benefits of a standard SensoNODE Blue Temperature Sensor, including:
- Tracking real-time data with a mobile device
- Monitoring ambient temperatures
- Diagnosing in-line temperature issues
Parker’s new SensoNODE Temperature Sensors are small in size, easily to install, and allow for quick, simple diagnostics.
