Press Release Summary:
Featuring DIN rail mount design, Model FTX-301 supports 3 fiber optic temperature inputs and includes 3 optically isolated 4-20 mA analog outputs, while Model FTX-302 is same device only without analog outputs. Both include industrial RS-485 serial bus for modbus communication to multiple daisy-chained devices. Providing real-time temperature data to 200Â°C, each device is configured and monitored via OSENSAView FTX software and direct USB connection to PC/laptop.

New Temperature Sensors for Switch Gear and Bus Bar Monitoring
OSENSA Innovations Corp. ("OSENSA") introduces two new fiber optic temperature sensor signal conditioners for continuous switch gear and bus bar monitoring to 200°C. The FTX-301 and FTX-302 fiber optic temperature transmitters are lower-cost, lower-resolution, alternatives to its high-precision FTX-300 series of temperature transmitters. The FTX-301 model support three fiber optic temperature inputs and includes three optically isolated 4-20mA analog outputs. The FTX-302 is the same device, except without the analog outputs. Both devices are standard DIN rail mountable and include an industrial RS-485 serial bus for modbus communication to multiple daisy-chained devices. Each device is quickly configured and monitored using OSENSAView FTX software and a direct USB connection to a PC or laptop. OSENSA is listing both new three channel models at prices starting below $1000 USD. OSENSA recognizes the growing demand for smart grid temperature monitoring and believes these two new product models will be ideally suited for monitoring of critical hot spots within medium and high-voltage switch gear. OSENSA's fiber optic sensors provide real-time temperature data, enabling operators to maximize load efficiency and balance thermal stresses that can lead to catastrophic failures. With continuous temperature monitoring capability, transmission and distribution companies can extend maintenance schedules and prolong equipment life. About OSENSA
