Lake Shore Cryotronics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of cryogenic temperature equipment, has released a new multi-input cryogenic sensor for programmable logic controller-based (PLC) temperature monitoring.

The latest 240 Series of sensor input modules, which are currently available on a pre-sale basis, allows for precision cryogenic temperature measurement in distributed process field bus (PROFIBUS) applications.

The rail-mountable modules can be networked to PLCs for reliable temperature monitoring in industrial-scale facilities. Additionally, the range avoids self-heating, cancels thermal electromotive forces (EMF) and converts sensor units to temperature valves.

The modules are available in both a high-speed 2-input module and a cost-efficient 8-input version, which needs less network addresses for a number of temperature measurement points.

The series has been designed for use in industrial cryogenic process control and plant and liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) storage environments. 

Lake Shore Cryotronics is a global innovator in measurement and control solutions. The Ohio-based company provides products and systems needed for precise measurements over a range of temperature and magnetic field conditions in electronic, clean energy, nanotechnology and other applications.
