Temperature and moisture sensors

Detecting a fire and moisture in time is crucial in determining how extensive the damage will be.  In the event of fire an early alarm determines whether the fire-fighting operation will succeed at all and the choice of detector must therefore be made with great care. Moisture sensors are used in order to limit moisture damage and are used in both private homes and in public buildings in the vicinity of water such as in kitchens.

Moisture sensors

Moisture sensors are incorporated into water alarms among other things. They consist of a non-woven material that absorbs moisture and water extremely rapidly. There are two metal wires in the sensor that detect the moisture by coming into contact with each other. They then transmit a signal to a sensor.

Bimetal thermostats

Bimetallic thermostats have an element which is thermally separated from the live parts and operates on the snap action principle with an on or off position. They are available with an automatic or manual reset function and are an affordable solution that is very reliable due to their simple operation.

Hermetic thermal fuses

These hermetic thermal fuses are disposable. The fuse consists of two opposing spiral metal wires with a specified melt temperature. At a specified ambient temperature the heating body fuses together resulting in the contact being broken and the supply of energy is throttled. These hermetic thermal fuses are highly reliable and easy to change.

Temperature sensors

Complete temperature sensors for inside or outside use. We develop this type of sensor according to your requirements and also have experience of harsh environments and demanding temperature ranges.
