Status Instruments has introduced an innovative wire-free temperature transmitter and receiver for use in industrial purposes, avoiding the installation of expensive and troublesome hard wired technology.
These advanced WX range features WTX700 wireless temperature transmitter in addition to the WRX 900 DIN rail receiver. Both these systems can be used in almost all the types of facilities, even in extreme industrial conditions.
The WTX700 transmitter accepts RTD as well as thermocouple sensors and slidewire and mV signals. It is activated by means of a 3.6V Lithium battery having a durability of about three years based on the rate of transmission. The two interface head options provide maximum suppleness. The SCH11 aluminium is sensor-attached whereas, the SCH4ABS plastic can be surface or sensor-mounted and can be deployed along with a flying lead sensor.
The information achieved using the 16 WTX700 transmitters is relayed to the WRX900 DIN Rail receiver. The receiver converts a maximum of four temperature values into two remote current signals and two transmit warning signals. Any one of the in-head transmitters can be coupled to any one of the relay or analogue feedbacks and all the data can be accessed using a RS485 digital connection.
In addition, antenna fixing bracket and extension wire is provided for facilitating cabinet connections or for improving the signal strength. The open air range of WX Sequence is about 300m, and it helps executing large-scale process.
The data signal is relayed with a frequency of 868,4MHzon the ISM band (Industrial Scientific and Medical Band) and is unaffected by exterior interferences, ideal for extreme industrial condition applications.
