4B Components Ltd has developed a new maintenance tool that makes the testing of 4B adjustable bearing temperature sensors quick, easy, and accurate. This hand held test unit features an integrated heating block specifically designed to have a 4B ADB sensor directly inserted. With integral controls and temperature display, the unit heats the sensor to the desired trip point, and allows quick and easy real life testing of the sensor and temperature monitoring system. During planned maintenance or periodic testing, the ADB bearing sensor tester can be used as a diagnostic tool to verify the alarm and shutdown sequences of the control unit are functioning as expected. To test, the heater block should be set above the control units alarm operating temperature. As the heater block reaches the alarm temperature, the ADB sensor will relay data to the hazard monitoring control unit, verifying that the alarm and shutdown sequences run as expected. This type of testing is critical in dust hazardous environments where bearing failures can become a possible ignition source for explosions.
