PR electronics, represented by Industrial Pyrometers , has developed a temperature transmitter with two bus protocols.

The new PRetop 5350 transmitter integrates both Profibus PA protocol and Foundation Fieldbus protocol. Shifts between the two protocols take place automatically via a unique switching principle.

The transmitter is dedicated to temperature measurement and level measurement in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as the food industry.

PR5350 is intended for temperature measurement with both Pt100 and thermocouple sensors and for linear resistance, potentiometer and bipolar mV measurement.

All functions can be set up easily and quickly via a PC program based on bus communication.

PRetop 5350 is the first DIN form B sensor head mounted transmitter with Foundation Fieldbus on the market and thus an extremely cost-effective solution. Even in the small housing it has plenty of capacity and capability.

The transmitter features a 24 bit A/D converter ensuring high resolution as well as a polarity-independent bus supply. At the same time, it has an extremely low temperature coefficient.

The new transmitter complies with internationally recognised standards such as CE, ATEX, UL, CSA, FM and FISCO and is thus suited for world-wide use. These standards allow installation of the module in both hazardous areas, Ex zone 0, 1 & 2, and non-hazardous areas.

The temperature transmitter is also available in a DIN rail housing with 1 or 2 channels. As is the case with all PR Electronics products, PRetop 5350 is manufactured according to ISO 9001 and covered by our 5-year product guarantee.
