New, Two-Wire, Rail Mount Temperature Transmitter From Siemens
ATLANTA, Jan. 7, 2007 - Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. today announced the release of two new, two-wire temperature transmitters, the Sitrans TR200 and the Sitrans TR300, designed for rail mounting. When connected in the 4-20 mA loop, these devices need no additional power supply. These devices are now available.
The Sitrans TR200 temperature transmitter is configured using a PC, and the Sitrans TR300 transmitter can be configured using a HART interface. Both devices feature a diagnostics LED that indicates the function status, which quickly detects open or short circuits so they can be corrected. This feature is useful, especially when dealing with a large number of measuring points.
The temperature transmitters support all standard RTDs and thermocouples, as well as resistance and voltage inputs. These new transmitters are suitable for use in all industries. Additionally, the DIN-rail mounting system means that the transmitters can be set up and maintained in a central location away from any harsh environmental conditions. The devices are simple to access and can be easily protected against heat and vibration.
