Custom-designed temperatures sensors

For over 70 years, Conax Technologies has been designing and manufacturing temperature sensors, thermocouples and RTD assemblies for a variety of industries worldwide, including power generationsemiconductoraerospaceoil and gasfurnaceautoclave, and more.

Conax engineers welcome the opportunity to discuss and develop solutions to your challenging applications. Our extensive knowledge of the science of temperature measurement and the physical properties of materials used for sheathing and insulation, has helped Conax become a leader in supplying high-quality, standard sensors. But that knowledge and experience has also given us the expertise to modify standard designs, creating customized solutions that meet our customers’ precise needs.

Longer sensor life and lower cost of ownership

Conax Technologies’ customized sensors are designed to increase sensor life and ultimately lower the cost of ownership. We understand that the cost of ownership includes more than just the cost of the sensor itself. That’s why we take other important factors into account such as ease of installation, initial accuracy, accuracy drift over the life of the sensor, and the cost of lost product or production due to premature sensor drift or failure.

Quality assurance

Conax thermocouples and RTDs are engineered, tested and inspected before shipment. Our quality assurance programs conform to AS9100 with ISO 9001:2015 and IEC 80079-34 standards for design and manufacture of temperature sensors, mineral insulated cable, and pressure and vacuum sealing devices.

RTD and thermocouple calibration

In addition to utilizing our many years of manufacturing excellence to design and build sensors of the highest quality, Conax has also applied that expertise to the area of electrical calibration of RTDs and thermocouples.

Our fully-equipped calibration lab is ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited and ILCA MRA certified. These accreditations set the standard of excellence for the competence of testing, and the Conax calibration laboratory is officially recognized as fully competent and capable of producing valid and reliable calibration data, including calibrations in compliance with the latest AMS 2750 standards.

Temperature capabilities range from -195.79°C (the boiling point of liquid nitrogen) to 1600°C. All calibrations are conducted under the guidance of our quality system, certified to AS9100 with ISO 9001:2015 and are performed by comparison techniques as defined in ASTM E220. Calibrations may be conducted either at Conax standard temperatures or at customer specified temperatures, using our state-of-the-art measuring equipment with a custom automated process control and data acquisition system to guarantee the accuracy and integrity of each calibration.

Our fully automated thermocouple and RTD calibration system continuously monitors the outputs of each sensor and the standard, while simultaneously controlling the temperature setting of the furnace. This system requires that the sensors stabilize at each calibration temperature before data is collected. Software then converts the thermocouple millivolt signal or RTD resistance to a temperature and compares this value to the temperature of the standard. The offset and acceptance to defined limits is determined without technician intervention, thereby eliminating possible human error and providing optimal accuracy.
