Temperature sensors that can take the heat

Today’s industrial processes are more demanding than ever before, pushing the limits of application performance in some of the toughest, most unpredictable environments. And when reliability and robustness are required—accurate temperature measurement can make or break outcomes.

The Danfoss portfolio of temperature sensors and transmitters—built on decades of application expertise—is engineered for the ultimate insight into your application while delivering resilient, long-lasting performance.


Different sensor element technologies can be applied depending on the equipment. If required, the temperature sensor can be delivered with a transmitter for an analog output signal.

Plus, our engineers have put specialized care into designing the sensors relative to reaction time. The sensor’s robust construction ensures minimal heat rejection resulting in a measurement extremely close to the actual media temperature.
