Our thin-profile stator winding RTDs can be customized to meet specific dimensions and applications in your electric rotating equipment
Stator winding RTDs monitor winding temperature, and allow for continuous measurement that supports potential early warning alerts. RTDs for motor winding temperatures are laminated sensors, usually inserted between the coils in the stator of a motor. A popular winding temperature monitoring solution for OEMs of electric motors, stator sensors are also used in generators and rotating machinery components.
Stator winding temperature sensors are also found in vehicles, devices, and other industrial machinery. These temperature sensing devices offer motor manufacturers an added element of continuous protection since they can sense increases in temperature, measured over a period of time. The temperature data from stator temperature sensors can be used to assess the reaction to potential—or impending—damage to its insulation or other components.
Duplex stator winding RTDs can provide extra temperature sensing protection, and motor winding temperature measurement when properly installed in motors and generators. In its duplex configuration, the RTD has a second element that serves as a backup sensor in the event of a severe increase in temperature that leads to damage. However, the second element also allows for temperature sensing both on-site as well as remote monitoring, such as from a control room or monitoring station.
Temp-Pro offers a variety of stator winding RTD options, including rear and side exit, as well as paddle sensors (alternatively known as Gas or Air RTDs). Stator winding RTDs can be manufactured with custom holes, additional elements, different coating materials, and dual sensors—all customized to meet the performance requirements of our most demanding customers.
