TEMP006 for measuring Motorwinding Temperature
Do you think it is possible to apply the TEMP006 Sensor in a Powertool (for example a Sander or a circular saw) to measure the temperature of the motor winding? The winding is made out of copper isolated with lacquer. And for the cooling of the motor a fan is mounted on the motorshaft.
The temperature can rise very fast depending on the applied load.
My concerns are that the airflow through the Motor in combination with the fast temperature increase may cause wrong temperature results.
Antoher concern is the wire itself. The wire is out of copper (polished, may cause reflections) and round, what makes it difficult to measure in an defined angle.
What is your opinion?
This sounds like an application which would be difficult to implement successfully with the TMP006 for several reasons:
Unfortunately I do not recommend the TMP006 in a system such as this.
