Spectrum Sensors & Controls Inc.: Refrigerant Temperature Sensor
June 29, 2009
The Sens-A-Coil with Type K thermocouple sensor monitors the refrigerant temperature in condenser and evaporator coils. It satisfies the new California energy standards, which require that a saturation temperature sensor must be part of the system once it is installed so that the refrigerant temperature can be verified by third-party raters. The sensor comes standard with 3 feet of Type K thermocouple cable and male plugs to connect directly to a digital thermometer. It integrates a fast-response sensor element into a plastic overmolded copper clip specially designed to snap onto 3/8-inch return bends, maximizing the sensing surface area and enabling the sensing element to quickly react to any changes in the refrigerant temperature.
