|EMBEDDED PLC LADDER LOGIC
The UTAdvanced hybrid controller combines PID control with embedded ladder sequence control. It supports 84 ladder commands, 24 DIO points, four analog inputs and three analog outputs. The PLC capability allows engineers using a temperature controller along with a mini/micro PLC to obtain the same control functionality in one package at the cost of just the temperature controller.

|24-VDC TEMPERATURE CONTROLLERS
Solo 24-VDC-powered process/temperature controllers are available in four standard DIN sizes. These single-loop units are equipped with a dual, four-digit, seven-segment display, and offer dual output control, making them ideal for managing heating and cooling processes. The built-in autotune function with PID control feature allows for fast and easy startups.
|SMART TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTERS
STT250 smart temperature transmitter monitors and controls the temperature of critical rotating and static assets. It converts low-level inputs from temperature sensors, such as RTDs/TCs, into current output, and works well over long distances through noisy plant environments. It comes with communication options including 4-20mA analog output, HART Versions 5/6 and DE Protocol.

|PICTURE THE HEAT
The OSXL-E series of thermal imaging cameras feature Wi-Fi connectivity, scalable P-i-P (picture in picture), thermal fusion and a bright LED light. This CE-compliant product stores more than 1000 JPEG images at 3.1 megapixel resolution. They have a long battery life of over 4 hours. The OSXL-E is ideal for discovering heat-loss issues that waste energy and money. It finds hidden problems quickly, preventing unscheduled shutdowns and improving plant safety.
Jofra PTC-125 Cooler and RTC-159 Ultra Cooler calibrators are designed for applications that require either extreme cooling or high heat. PTC-125 offers a wide temperature range (-90 ºC to +125 ºC), and features an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. Both PTC and RTC Series calibrators incorporate an efficient, free-piston Stirling cooler, and feature improved heating and cooling speeds.
Ametek Calibration Instruments
Krohne-Inor's 520 series temperature transmitters feature 0.05% of span accuracy and a five-year stability—four times better than comparable transmitters. They're SIL2-rated for safety-related applications. The C520 is truly universal—used with single or double thermocouples and RTDs. Double inputs enable safety features, such as sensor backup and drift monitoring.
|VERSATILE TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER
The Rosemount 644 temperature transmitter is based on human-centered design, which makes it an easy-to-use, head-mount transmitter. New features include dual sensor inputs, SIL 2 safety certification, a local operator interface (LOI) with intuitive menus, diagnostics and enhanced performance. Users can custom-build their ideal temperature transmitter with the Rosemount 644.

|NO RDT INPUT CARD
TTM series of temperature transmitters features an analog output that eliminates the need for specialized RTD PLC input cards. TTM series provides a 4-20 mA output using an integrated PT100 resistance temperature detector. It's plug-and-play, and comes pre-scaled at 0 °C to 100 °C; 0 °C to 150 °C; -50 °C to 50 °C; or -50 °C to 150 °C.
|SMART TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER AND SWITCH
One Series SIL 2-suitable smart temperature transmitters from United Electric Controls include programmable, solid-state relays for local and PLC input switching. Configurable self-diagnostics monitor vital functions with temperature and status reporting via a local digital display. The scalable 4-20 mA output and switch provide remote diagnostics capability.

|TRANSMIT FOR LESS
TCS Temperature Concentrator System transmits multiple temperature sensor measurements by concentrating up to 32 signals onto a single twisted-wire pair. It accepts any combination of RTD, T/C, mV and resistance/potentiometer signal inputs, converts the inputs to the HART digital communications protocol, and transmits the data from the field to the control room.
|RUGGED INFRARED THERMOMETERS
Modline 7 Series of infrared thermometers are rugged, IP65 (NEMA 4), sealed sensor systems with extended temperature ranges (-40 ºF to 5432 ºF/3000 ºC), high-resolution optics and fast response times. The thermometer's sensing head can operate as a standalone sensor, providing simultaneous analog and digital outputs of process temperatures.
Beamex offers two dry block series: FB Series are lightweight, high-accuracy temperature dry blocks for industrial use, while MB Series deliver bath-level accuracy for industrial applications. They communicate with Beamex MC5 multifunction calibrators. The calibration results can then be uploaded from the MC5 to Beamex CMX calibration software.
