Tube/probe enclosure for sensors
« on: July 27, 2012, 02:25:04 pm »
Hi!

How do I find tube shaped enclosure for sensors, or do I have to get someone to make custom made enclosures for that?

I'm looking for something similar to this

But I've seen lots of different tube shaped/probe sensors with good enclosures that could work for my sensor, but never found an empty enclosure for sale anywhere.

Would a large felt-tip marker body work for you?

Hmm, that is not a bad idea :)

That would work for a prototype actually :D Thanks alot for that idea.

But I think I need to produce some more later, I found a company nearby that could make them.

Enclosure for a probe?

There you go:

http://www.teko.co.uk/en/prodotti/famiglia/AC/serie/29

They have a big range of enclosures. They are connected to OKW:

(Serpac and Rolec as well, check the links at the bottom left of the OKW page). Contact them, they will probably send you a sample as well.

Greetings,

Chris

What kind of sensor is it?

If you are looking for something for a temperature probe, you may be looking for a thermowell?
