In industrial process engineering applications, temperature transmitters act as a link between temperature sensors in the process and the higher levels of automation. Measurement instruments often are installed in difficult-to-access locations that can complicate commissioning, operation and servicing.
To address these and other issues, Model iTEMP TMT142B has a secure, integrated Bluetooth interface that enables users to wirelessly visualize measured values, access NAMUR NE 017 diagnostic information and perform configuration tasks. The smart temperature transmitter can be set up and operated via a phone or tablet and the company’s SmartBlue app. The configurable, single-channel device transmits converted signals from resistance sensors (RTD), thermocouples (TC), resistances (Ω) and voltage transmitters (mV) via the 4 to 20 mA signal or the HART 7 communication.
