The primary function of the Hitachi EX100-200 Temperature Sender is to measure and transmit temperature data from various points within the machine to the central control system.
This information is crucial for monitoring the health and performance of critical components such as the engine, transmission, hydraulic system, and more. By continuously monitoring temperature, the sender helps prevent overheating and potential damage to these vital parts.
The sender is designed specifically for Hitachi EX100 and EX200 series excavators. Its OEM designation (Original Equipment Manufacturer) ensures compatibility and seamless integration into the machinery's existing systems.
This sender is engineered to measure temperatures within a specified range. The exact range may vary depending on the model and application, but it typically covers the temperatures relevant to heavy machinery operation, such as engine coolant temperature, hydraulic oil temperature, and transmission oil temperature.
Accuracy and Precision:
Accuracy is paramount in temperature monitoring, especially in heavy machinery where slight deviations can lead to significant issues. The Hitachi EX100-200 Temperature Sender is designed to provide precise and reliable temperature readings to ensure the machinery operates within optimal temperature ranges.
5. Sensor Type:
The sender likely employs advanced temperature sensing technology, such as thermocouples or resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), to accurately measure temperature changes. These sensors are chosen for their durability, sensitivity, and resistance to environmental factors such as vibration and moisture.
The sender operates as an electrical component and may have specific voltage and current requirements.
It is essential to ensure that the electrical system in the machinery can provide the necessary power to the sender for accurate temperature measurements and data transmission.
Installation and Maintenance:
Installing and maintaining the sender correctly is critical for its performance and longevity. Detailed instructions on installation, calibration, and maintenance should be provided by the manufacturer or specified in the equipment's user manual.
Importance in Machine Health Monitoring:
The Hitachi EX100-200 Temperature Sender is an integral part of the machinery's health monitoring system. Abnormal temperature readings can trigger alarms or warnings in the control system, prompting operators or maintenance personnel to take appropriate action, such as shutting down the machine to prevent further damage.
The sender contributes to the safety of both the equipment and the operators. By continuously monitoring temperatures, it helps prevent overheating-related failures that could lead to accidents or costly repairs.
