The KNS 100 series of temperature sensors are designed for measuring the temperature of gaseous substances in spaces protected against water. In the application segment of railway vehicles, sensors are used to measure the temperature in the passenger compartments of train units and wagons and are part of the temperature control system.

The sensors consist of the ribbed plastic head, where the sensing element is placed. The maximum operating temperature range of the sensor is -40 to 100 ° C. The sensors can be used for all control systems compatible with the types of detection elements listed in the technical parameters table. The sensor complies with the protection index IP 30 according to standard EN 60529, as amended. Appropriate design and high-quality materials ensure that the sensors are not disturbing, even in interiors with high aesthetic requirements. You can choose the color of the box white or gray.

The sensors are intended to operate in a chemically non-aggressive environment.


Type tests are carried out by a notified body according to standard EN 50155, as amended, Railway applications - Electronic equipment used on rolling stock, Art. 12.2.9, 12.2.11

- Insulation test according to EN 50155, as amended

- Shock and vibration tests according to EN 61373, as amended

The material of the plastic box and the PCB meets a set of requirements for R 24 materials according to Table 5 for the fire risk level HL1-HL2-HL3 of the standard EN 45545-2, as amended. . May be supplied with materials that meet NFPA 130 fire safety standard, as amended.

- Class-leading precision (except for Ni 10000/5000, Ni 10000/6180, T1 = Ni 2226, NTC 20 kΩ)

- possibility of coating non-standard temperature sensors (DALLAS, TSiC, KTY, SMT, TC etc.)

- possibility of 3-wire or 4-wire connection
