    BC Network 8000 temp sensors

    Anyone know what type of temp sensor (1K RTD, 10K-2 Thermistor etc.) the Barber Coleman Network 8000 system typiclly uses?

    Thanks

    RTD's and Thermistor's.

    RTD's Balco, Nickel, Platinum
    Thermistor,s w/11k shunt

    LCM / GCS will take the following sensors

    TS 8000 BALCO
    TS 5900 Copper
    TS 5700 Thermistor (10K )
    TS 5700 Thermistor ( 30K )
    TS 5800 Platinum
    Slide Wire Potentiometer 50 10,000 OHMs

    For current
    4 - 20 MA 250 OHM resistor required

    For Voltage
    0 12 volt DC

    Limitations on distance sensor can be located from panel ranges from 350 to 1000 Feet

    For MICROZONE IIs

    Basically the same with the addition of the TS 9000 series sensors for PSI interface

    Most use the TS 8000 sensors as they are lower in $ and are very rugged / reliable

    Thanks for the replies. Looking at pulling a couple of older NW 8000 systems and replacing them with stand alone (for now) JCI FX gear. Was curious if there was a chance for re-using the temp sensors. I'll budget new ones.

    Thanks again

    Just make your own conversion tables, those sensors should work fine.

    The sensor's have a different reference point

    TS 5900 & 8000 is 1000 Ohms at 70'F

    TS 5700 is 10,000 Ohms at 77'F for 10K and 77'F for the 30K as well

    TS 5800 Platinum is 1000 Ohms at 32'F

    Anyone know of a company replacing the TS9000 series? I have sensors that are dying Model number TS90130?

    Thanks

    Are you perhaps talking about the TS-90230 sensor? If you are, you can order an ACI sensor, ACI/10K-AN-RO, and add an 11K ohm, 1/4 watt resistor across the sensor terminals. This sensor also has a push button override.

    Kele sells these, as well as Intec.

    Thanks for the reply.. I finally got a cut sheet on the correct sensor (TSP-90130)

    See attachment

    its got a heating and cooling slide switch

    Either way, I will contatc ACI

    Thanks again

    I took a look at the cut sheet, and I see now that these are for the Microzone or Microflo I series controllers. The companies' name has changed (as you may know) from Barber Colman, to Siebe, to Invensys, and now TAC. Have you tried to get them from TAC?
