KS Extreme Temperature Capacitive Sensors

For applications where an extremely high or extremely low temperature rating is needed, the KS Series operates between -328 °F to +482°F (-200 °C to +250 °C). That is an operating temperature between liquid nitrogen and the temperature of standard cooking equipment. This sensor can go where most other sensors can't.

We are sorry to announce that the 120 VAC and 240 VAC KSA amplifiers listed below have been suddenly discontinued due to circumstances beyond our control. To continue using KS-series sensors, there are various 24 VDC amplifiers still available and production of these models have not been affected.

A retrofit kit for the discontinued AC voltage amplifiers can be found here: SA7560 - retrofit kit for KSA-250 AC amplifiers. The purpose of this kit is to retrofit DC voltage KSA-250 amplifiers into AC voltage applications that previously used the now discontinued AC voltage KSA-250 amplifiers.
