The task of a head transmitter is the conversion of a weak sensor signal into a stable, standardized output signal. The special advantage of a head transmitter is that it has the closest possible proximity to the measurement point, which leads to a significant improvement with regard to accuracy, EMC properties and signal stability.

Having sold more than 2.5 million temperature transmitters over the last 15 years, including a significant number with the FOUNDATION fieldbus interface, Endress+Hauser is one of the most experienced suppliers. With the iTEMP FF TMT85, a transmitter is now available that provides device diagnostics capabilities according to the FF-912 standard. A plug-on display, assembly and sensor connection options guarantee a wide range of applications. In combination with the approvals for hazardous areas, it ensures safe and precise measurements in different industries.

Device diagnostic information according to FF-912 is increasingly demanded by plant operators, device manufacturers and system vendors alike. It essentially sorts the diagnostic information into four distinct categories. As a result, the user can easily assess the seriousness of an event, and with the additional diagnostic information provided by the device, manage the plant in an even more efficient and reliable way.
