Networked Robotics' Advanced Digital Temperature Probes
Advanced temperature monitoring can be achieved with new advanced digital temperature sensors. Advanced ease of installation, durability, accuracy, and regulatory features will enhance the success of your temperature monitoring program.
The Networked Robotics TPL3-series digital temperature sensors are waterproof, glycerine-proof, and the TPL3U version can be used in ultra-cold (-80ºC) freezers without risk of damage. The TPL3U version will monitor temperature from -80 degrees Celsius to 120 degrees Celsius with .1 degree precision, making it ideal for use with a wide range of storage units. A green glow tells the users of freezers, at-a-glance, that the Tempurity™ System is communicating properly to the network via our network hardware.
Our probes implement features for regulatory use. Regulatory data, including electronically embedded unique IDs are available in all probes, and calibration data including date calibrated and offset may be programmed internally. All TPL3-series digital temperature probes manufactured by Networked Robotics since 2004 have these advanced regulatory capabilities.
Probes are color-coded with sixteen unique colors to match the last digit of the internal electronic unique ID.
Optional glycerine cells are available for those that require a finished look while meeting specific regulatory requirements.
The Networked Robotics TPL3-series vs Analog Temperature Sensors
Older analog sensors that are often used by our competitors are usually based on the use of resistive wire. There are three limitations:
1. Readings can be altered slightly by changes anywhere along the length of the wire. As a result some companies need to use potentiometers to adjust for the slight changes that can be different from day to day creating a signficant maintenance overhead.
2. Because the reading of a resistive probe is subject to electrical effects anywhere on the length of the wire, round wire - which minimizes interference is usually used. But round wire running through the seal of a freezer creates a small gap that can let air in, thus reducing energy efficiency and causing internal frost build-up. With our digital temperature sensors an ultra-thin 1 mm connection wire means that air gaps are substantially reduced. Note that almost all wireless systems, although they are wireless up to the freezer, still require wired sensors to pass through the door seal of that freezer.
3. Digital probes can provide functions that analog sensors cannot. These include programmed LED indicators, internally stored unique IDs, internally stored calibration data and other features for advanced regulatory use.
