Moore Industries TFZ Saves Wire and Installation Costs

The TFZ Saves Wire and Installation Costs by Allowing Up to 32 Field Devices to Be Networked onto One, Low-Cost FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 Segment

Foundation Fieldbus Knowledge Center

The TFZ Programmable FOUNDATION Fieldbus Temperature Transmitter from Moore Industries can be installed on the same segment with all standard FOUNDATION fieldbus devices. The TFZ converts a temperature sensor input to a FOUNDATION fieldbus H1, two-way digital communication protocol that is ready for interface to a DCS, computer-based SCADA system, or asset management software.

The TFZ saves wire and installation costs by allowing up to 32 field devices to be networked onto one, low-cost FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 segment. It requires only 10.5mA for normal operation.

The bus-powered, two-wire TFZ offers dozens of input types. It sets up from the control room over segment wiring, using a standard FOUNDATION fieldbus configuration tool or host, to handle 14 RTD types, nine thermocouple types, as well as direct millivolt and resistance/potentiometer inputs.

The TFZ is Fieldbus Foundation registered, CE Conformant, and is certified as an Intrinsically Safe, Non-Incendive, and Type N apparatus. It has cFMus (Canada & U.S.), ATEX and IECEx approvals for use in Zones 0/1/2, Class I, Div.1/Div.2 hazardous 'classified' areas.
