To increase rigidity, silicon sensors are cemented in metal sleeves made of brass, aluminium or stainless steel.
The KTY-MH series is a silicon sensor produced by Ephy Mess with shrinkable tube protection. These sensors are suitable for protecting electrical machines against thermal overload. They are manufactured with crimp processes, and isolated with a temperature resistant tube. Its small dimensions and bendability permits direct installation into electrical windings. These tools are also cemented in metal sleeves made of brass, aluminum, or stainless steel to increase durability.
