Ready to go live: Our newly developed Cylinder Liner Temperature Sensor System CLTS continuously observes the temperature level of each liner in a marine engine aggregate. The aim is to detect defects at an early stage and to protect the cylinder liner from irreparable damage.
The sensors show a highly robust design: Sensor tip can withstand and detect temperatures from -40°C up to 800°C whereas materials in use are of stainless steel. Inside the sensors there is a spring mechanism which allows the sensor tip to move – and therefore to guarantee the constant mechanical contact between sensing element and cylinder liner. Thus, excellent thermal response will be provided and short reaction times are secured in case of overheating.
Each liner will be equipped with a pair of sensors, both installed in opposite direction. This supports to determine the worst-case temperature level no matter installation tolerances inside the liner.
CLTS sensors are equipped with an evaluation board, assembled in housing GHG02731. Outgoing communication will be provided as current loop 4...20mA or I²C. This makes the CLTS system a flexible solution also for monitoring temperatures in large gear units as well as plain and ball bearings of heavy-duty drives.
