Manifold Air Temperature Sensor

Currawong’s manifold air temperature sensor is a lightweight and robust sensor which measures the temperature of the air inside the intake manifold. The sensor is based on the KTY83 silicon resistive element chip. This sensor has a positive temperature coefficient of resistance with a typical resistance of 950 ohms at 20°C and 2500 ohms at 175°C.

Currawong offers a range of lengths and connector types to meet the requirements of most engine installations.

Cylinder Head Temperature Sensor
This lightweight and robust sensor is intended for sensing the temperature of the cylinder head in small engines and is particularly intended for the UAV industry. The sensor is based on the KTY84 silicon resistive element chip. These sensors have a positive temperature coefficient of resistance with a typical resistance of 580 ohms at 20°C and 2600 ohms at 300°C.
Specifications
Temperature range:-40°C to +300°C (-40°F to 572-55°F)
Cylinder head fitting:M5 x 0.8 mm thread, 4.5 mm long to the shoulder of the fitting
Connector:Omnetics 5 pin with the sensor connected between pin 1 (earth) and pin 4
Sleeving:High temperature translucent teflon sleeve, diameter 3.8mm
Overall length:127mm (5 inches), standard version
Weight:6 grams (0.2 oz), with all fittings
