Endress + Hauser Australia announces the launch of a new generation of iTEMP transmitters and components.
More than one million devices have been sold worldwide across a range of industries since the launch of the first Endress + Hauser iTEMP digital temperature head transmitter in 2000. Continuous development in the iTEMP portfolio has resulted in an improved range of transmitters with increased functionality and housing options to meet new industry requirements.
The latest Endress + Hauser iTEMP TMT82 temperature head transmitters feature HART, which ensures minimised risk in critical applications due to the introduction of a second sensor input. This can be used as a hot sensor back up so that if one sensor input fails, the device will automatically switch to the second. It can also be used to measure differential or average temperatures and even drift detection between two elements.
The HART signal opens up a wealth of additional diagnostic functionality over standard 4...20mA devices, including sensor open or short circuit alerts, drift detection and sensor corrosion warnings. The device will automatically send a signal to the control system to communicate the error, indicate a possible cause and suggest remedies to overcome the issue.
The new temperature head transmitters offer a plug-on display feature, which can be added for continuous measurement and diagnostics display. This plug-on display shows both actual measured value as well as measurement point identification information.
On attachment to the TMT82, it runs a start-up phase in which various device information and settings are shown in sequence, simplifying the identification of the measurement point during calibration and maintenance. In the event of an alarm, an error message will appear on the display.
The TMT82 temperature transmitter with TID10 process display instantly upgrades standard temperature assemblies to provide maximum data availability with minimum expenditure.
