Moore Industries-Pacific announces a new solution for accurately monitoring temperature in remote locations while accessing valuable Smart HART data.
The THZ WirelessHART Temperature solution combines the THZ Smart HART temperature transmitter and the BULLET WirelessHART adapter by MACTek into a reliable and affordable self-powered package. The new WL enclosure is a modified version of the DH housing and is available as an option when purchasing the THZ Smart HART temperature transmitter.
The WL housing includes a battery case utilising off-the-shelf D-type lithium batteries wired to the transmitter and the BULLET, allowing the package to be installed without the need for signal wiring or additional power while also saving on long-term maintenance and repair costs associated with wiring. It also reduces replacement battery costs by cycling the THZ’s power and taking periodic readings to balance power needs with wireless communication update rates. Consequently, these lithium batteries can last up to four or five years.
The THZ WirelessHART assembly allows the THZ to transmit critical temperature and HART diagnostic information to a WirelessHART gateway in situations where power is not readily available such as remote pumping stations or monitoring locations where access to power is limited. The THZ WirelessHART solution allows engineers to take full advantage of critical temperature readings and HART diagnostics without needing solar panels or other power sources.
Key features of the THZ WirelessHART solution include: industry-leading 20-bit input resolution and long-term stability specifications, with up to five years of service between scheduled calibrations; loss of critical temperature readings prevented with the BULLET monitoring battery voltage and setting a HART alarm bit when nearing critical levels; factory or field configurable using standard HART handheld communicators or HART-capable host systems; weatherproof IP66 NEMA Type 4X dual compartment housing available for installation in rugged field areas; and easy access to HART handheld connections and battery voltage monitoring terminals and a large, easy-to-read display.
