Sensor Protection from Heat and Cold

The innovative Thermo Protection Cooling Case (TPCC) ideally protects sensitive optical sensors, such as laser distance sensors or optical data transfer systems, from extreme heat (up to 176°F [+80°C]) and cold (down to -40°F [-40°C]) or extreme temperature variations in production and logistics facilities.

The TPCC protects optical sensors from HEAT up to 176°F (+80°C) and COLD down to -40°F (-40°C).

Protected by the TPCC, optical sensors can now be used in environments, where high temperatures and radiant heat previously either prevented the use or significantly reduced the life span of optical sensors.

The TPCC enables the reliable use of laser diodes, electronic components, optical data transfer systems and other temperature-sensitive sensors at temperatures of up to 176°F (+80°C), which occur, for example, in iron and steel production facilities.

In low-temperature environments, such as cold storage warehouses, the TPCC can also be equipped with a heating element to keep sensors protected from low temperatures to improve their measurement accuracy and life span.

Guenter Sommerer, Equipment Planning, BMW AG, Landshut Factory, Germany:

"No malfunctions occurred after the TPCC was installed and downtimes caused by sensor malfunctions were completely eliminated. The TPCC perfectly protects the SICK DT500 sensor from heat, effectively preventing measurement errors. The sensor's susceptibility to the high radiant heat that previously led to a loss of production was completely remedied and BMW's investment in the TPCC paid off very quickly."
