Temperature probes for direct installation (DS)
Steadily rising energy costs and strict legal requirements require highly accurate billing of the thermal energy consumed in heating systems or cooling systems.
An important component of the heat and cooling meters used for this purpose are the precise temperature probes for determining the temperature difference at the flow and return of the heating.
Temperature probes for measuring thermal energy, which are permissible for the demanding use in billing systems, are also available from us ready paired on request.
The Testo Sensor GmbH not only produces temperature probes for heat and cold meters according to your customer-specific specifications, but also keeps an eye on all standards and guidelines for proper approval.

Technical requirement for heat meter probes (direct installation)
To ensure that heating and cooling costs can be accurately allocated to the consumer and producer, a very accurate temperature measurement must take place. This follows strict legal requirements, because only in this way is a qualitative framework for reliable and comparable temperature measurements and thus heat and cold quantity counts possible.
Therefore, the conformity according to MID (Measuring Instruments Directive) of the EU, the European regulations for heat metering, is essential for our probes. There is currently no overarching European regulation in force for cold quantity metering; national regulations apply, e.g. according to the Measuring and Calibration Ordinance.
You can rest assured that the temperature probes from Testo Sensor GmbH fully meet or exceed all requirements for operation in conjunction with heat and cold quantity meters.
