Model TPZ saves wiring and installation costs by allowing up to 32 field devices (126 with repeaters) to be networked onto one Profibus PA data link. The temperature transmitter has 20-bit input resolution to provide measurement accuracies of up to +/-0.09oF (+/-0.05 oC). A large two-line, alphanumeric digital display shows real-time process status and diagnostic information. The loop-powered (2-wire) transmitter sets up from the control room using a standard Profibus PA configuration tool to handle 14 RTD types, 9 thermocouple types, as well as direct millivolt and resistance/potentiometer inputs.
