Surface Mount Sensors : KaptonŽ& Silicone

Surface Mount Sensors : KaptonŽ& Silicone

Birk Manufacturing's surface mount temperature sensors are produced using only the highest quality RTDs and thermocouples available. The surface mount RTD temperature sensor or thermocouple temperature sensor can be encapsulated with either KaptonŽ or Silicone for superior protection of your sensor.

Kapton encapsulation provides additional benefits by eliminating fiber content that is found in traditional silicone, these KaptonŽ surface mount temperature sensors provides water resistance and chemical protection. They are clean, durable and a cost effective solution for your application needs. Silicone, however, while still cost effective, has the advantage of being waterproof and more chemical resistant then KaptonŽ. Silicone is more elastic and provides a low stress bond between sensor and surface.

EN60751 Class B with tolerance of 0.12% (+/- 0.3°C at 0°C) for all standard RTDs Additional Classes available upon request 2, 3 or 4 wire configurations available Standard lead wires lengths available are 12", 18", and 36" Custom lead lengths available upon request Maximum temperature: 260°C ( KaptonŽ Encapsulated), 200°C (Silicone Encapsulated) RTD Long-term stability: <0.04% at 1000h at max. temperature RTD Characteristics curve: 3850 ppm/f Backing Options : PSA, Foil Backing or Foil backing with PSA Additional backing options available upon request
