THE new INFOSENSE-PTM plug and play sensors by Watlow provide a high level of accuracy and convenience through automatically linking the customer's application to Watlow's NIST-traceable calibration lab.

The INFOSENSE-P technology incorporates an EEPROM memory chip, preprogrammed with each sensor's part number, manufacturing information, and full range temperature calibration.

INFOSENSE-P sensors use IEEE 1451.4 technology, so when a sensor is wired or connected to IEEE 1451.4 compatible electronics, the controller accesses the information provided and performs a full high-order curve fit to correct for all known error.

Utilising INFOSENSE-P technology improves initial accuracy of standard thermocouples by three times and the accuracy of RTD sensors by 10 times at 600°C (1112°F).

INFOSENSE-P plug and play temperature sensors can be used in applications such as aerospace, analytical labs, food processing, furnace, heat treat, life sciences, oil and gas processing, pharmaceutical, power generation, semiconductor and test stands.
