kamertemp.sens. would work, but takes 15 characters.

Maybe you should talk to your client. Otherwise,

ktemp.sens.

would be an option.

Notes to answerer
Asker: about: kamertemperatuur, of course you are right. That was typo. But i have antother question. Can I abbreviate "kamertemperatuursensor" as Kamertemp.sens. ? Is that correct or you suggest something different ?

agree  Ron Willems: yep, that's the best solution (@asker: the long version of the word is 'kamertemperatuur', not 'kamertemperaturr'. FWIW)
