Mini temperature transmitters

31 January 2012

Omega's new TX-M12 series of temperature transmitters are said to offer improved performance over conventional in-head devices.

Housed in a rugged stainless steel enclosure, the transmitters provide fast, secure and watertight connections for both the sensor and the instrumentation.

Smaller than a standard head-mounted transmitter, these units measure 38mm diameter with a height of 20mm and weigh 100 grams, they are suited to a broad range of applications.

The transmitters can accept a variety of resistance sensors, including Pt100, Pt500 and Pt1000, Ni100, Ni1000 and variable resistance up to 10,000 ohms. The integral M12 connectors maintain IP67 protection, while allowing for a quick and simple change of sensor. Two outputs are available with either 4-20mA or 0-10Vdc with an accuracy of ± 0.2 °C + 0.05% of reading. Default scaling for the output is 0 to 100°C and other ranges can be specified at the time of purchase. It is also possible for the user to scale the transmitter in the field by programming the device with the optional USB module that is supplied with free software.
