Temperature Sensor, Type MBT 5250, MBT 5252 and MBT 5260

  • Heavy-duty temperature sensors for controlling cooling water, lubrication oil, hydraulic oil and refrigeration plants within general industry and marine applications. These temperature sensors are based on a standardized Pt 100 or Pt 1000 element, which gives a reliable and accurate measurement. All three sensor types can be delivered with NTC / PTC elements on request.

    In the low temperature version (-50 – 200 °C) the measuring insert is based on a silicone cable, which makes the sensor very resistant towards vibrations. The MBT 5250 with changeable measuring insert and MBT 5260 with fixed measuring insert are equipped with EN 175301-803-A, Pg 9 as standard. The MBT 5252 is equipped with a B-head as standard, but can also be delivered with B-mini Head on request. If needed, a transmitter (MBT 9110) can be ordered as an integrated part of the MBT 5252 sensor.
