Wireless, telemetry sensor system for hazardous areas
21 March 2017
Mantracourt has launched an intrinsically safe version of its T24 wireless telemetry sensor system. The new X24 range of products is ATEX and IECEx approved for Zones 1 & 2.
Alongside its ATEX/IECEx status, a key feature is its modularity. The X24 system comprises three products that are certified for use in hazardous areas – the X24-HD handheld display unit, X24-ACMI-SA cased transmitter and X24-SAe OEM transmitter. Currently, they operate with strain bridge inputs and gather and transmit data from force, weight, torque and pressure sensors. Being fully compatible with Mantracourt’s T24 system, the data is transmitted to T24 receivers within the safe zone. This compatibility also means that the X24 system can be retrofitted, so it is possible to extend an existing T24 wireless network into hazardous areas, reducing installation costs and providing quick setup.
Once in the safe zone, users of the system have access to the complete T24 product range. This includes the base stations and T24 Toolkit and visualisation software.
The free data logging and visualisation software allows users to log up to 100 channels and build visual displays. Alarms can be set that can indicate under and over range and can alert users to loss in communication, low battery and error reports. A built in web server provides a summary view page to other computers, tablets and smart phones.
