JUMO screw-in RTD temperature probe with bayonet connector for railway technology

East Syracuse NY, USA  —  Measurement technology in railway vehicles is often subjected to extreme loads.

A test conducted by the Swiss Quincel institute has now provided impressive confirmation of the fact that the JUMO screw-in RTD temperature probe with bayonet connector for railway technology fulfills even the most stringent requirements.

The 902815 model was tested according to the EN 50 155 standard for the railway industry, and easily met the requirements for the institute’s Environmental Testing Certificate.

Among other things, this standard guarantees that the product can be used at an ambient temperature of between -40 and +85 °C.

To verify this, the screw-in RTD temperature probe was subjected to intense temperature tests as well as an extensive range of vibration and shock tests according to EN 61373. Continue reading
