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.
