Humidity and temperature transmitter controls climate in the train

Jumo air conditioning train

Jumo temperature transmitter10.12.2022 | Jumo offers a comprehensive portfolio of measurement and control technology for the railway industry. In addition to measuring the temperature in the chassis area and in the water supply, the temperature and humidity control in the passenger compartment is of particular importance.

Air conditioning systems in trains lower temperatures in summer and dehumidify the air inside the train when outside temperatures are low. Also because of the extremely hot summers in Europe in recent years, the demand for solutions for this is increasing, as Innotrans 2022 showed. Jumo can help with the Hydrotrans temperature transmitter Model series. This includes reliable humidity and temperature transmitters with an optional CO2 Module. The temperature transmitters are available with different interfaces. They are robust, easy to install and have a reliable connection sensors.

The Hydrotrans has the necessary railway approval DIN EN 50155. and is therefore ideal for climate monitoring in rail traffic. It is available in two versions: as a channel version and as a rod version. The measuring range is 0 to 100% RH with an accuracy of 2% RH, the temperature range is between -40° and +80 °C.

CO2 Module for optimal air in the train

Jumo Lars RongeFor the exact determination of air quality indoors there is an optional CO2 Module that has a measuring range of up to 10.000 ppm. By placing the module in the sensor head, very short response times can be achieved. Voltage output, current output and Modbus are available as interfaces.

With the CO2 Air quality monitoring module can also add a significant Climate efficiency implement, which saves the operator heating costs and reduces maintenance costs, especially in times of electricity price increases. Jumo ensures the quality assurance of moisture-sensitive products, so that users benefit from low maintenance and long-lasting products. The filter cap can also be easily changed.

In order for the air conditioning system to be able to regulate the temperatures in the train, the temperature measurement and temperature control must be reliable and constant. The temperature sensors and thermostats exposed to the movements must therefore be robust and resistant to vibration. The transmitter from Jumo meets all of these requirements. With Degree of protection IP20 and IP65 but it is also suitable for other areas of application. In addition to railway technology, these are the building automation as well as use in factories and warehouses.

In the Fixed parameter version the 4 to 20 mA outputs are preset for each parameter for quick commissioning. The transmitters have a green/red LED for on-site diagnostics. The use of pre-calibrated sensors means that maintenance work and system downtime can be reduced to a minimum.

Auch im Data transfer Thanks to Memosens, the small transmitter offers a reliable, easy-to-implement transfer. The measured values ​​are digitized directly in the sensor and forwarded to the transmitter without contact. For use in adverse environments, the transmitter has a robust and tight housing.

This makes the Memosens sensors suitable for use in the pharmaceutical sector, food technology and Energy- or water industry. The protection classes IP67, IP68 and Nema 6 qualify the transmitter for outdoor use. 


What is Memosens?

The Memosens principle digitizes the measured value in the sensor. He then transfers this contactlessly to the transmitter. The Memosens technology thus solves typical problems in liquid analysis. Measurement problems such as those caused by moisture, corrosion or interference potential are a thing of the past thanks to perfect galvanic isolation, inductive coupling and digital memory function. The measuring point becomes more available and the process runs smoothly.
