MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced its R300
Series Temperature Sensor for use in potential EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) applications where operating temperatures can reach 300 °C [572 °F].
The purpose of an EGR system on an engine is to reduce NOx (nitrous oxide and nitrous dioxide) emissions by cooling and recirculating exhaust gas back into the engine. The R300 helps the EGR system optimize those NOx emission controls.
The R300 Series uses RTD (resistance temperature detector) technology and features arobust, stainless steel closed-tip design to enhance reliability in aggressive environments. Itprovides an excellent response time as demonstrated by validation testing required by the
transportation industry. The R300 also features an integral connector.
