CS240 PT1000 Class A, Back of Module Temperature Sensor

Overview

The CS240 is a surface-mountable PT1000 Class A RTD in a ruggedized form factor commonly used in solar energy applications to measure back-of-module temperature with the highest level of accuracy. To withstand the harsh treatment commonly seen in MET station installations, the RTD is safely housed inside a specially designed self-adhesive aluminium disk.

Benefits and Features

  • Precision PT1000 Class A Sensing Element
  • Various cable lengths available
  • Rugged design holds up in harsh conditions and conduit installations
  • Self-adhesive backing for easy mounting lasts decades
  • 2-wire and 4-wire configuration to satisfy channel count and accuracy—even at long cable lengths
