Endress+Hauser's iTEMP TMT162 is a FOUNDATION Fieldbus temperature transmitter designed to meet the highest demands in ruggedness, accuracy and diagnostic capabilities. Available with an aluminum or stainless steel housing, it has separate electronic and connection compartments for safe and quick installation, as well as gold-plated terminals for long-term protection against corrosion. RTD, thermocouple, O and mV sensors can be connected. A large backlit display provides measurement, bar graph and diagnostic information. Certified transmitter versions are available with various types of Ex-protection.


The iTEMP TMT162 transmitter supports two-channel operation with monitoring of redundancy and temperature drift, as well as calculation of differential and average temperature. In order to ensure highest accuracy in critical applications, sensors can be matched by Callendar/Van Dusen equation or linearization.

iTEMP TMT162 conforms to ITK 6.1.2 and the Field Diagnostic System specification (NAMUR NE 107). Diagnostic messages can be allocated as required to four urgency categories, with additional information available when required. The resulting quick identification and rectifying of faults increases the availability of the plant. Built-in diagnostic functions include recognition of sensor short-circuit, lead breakage and RTD/TC corrosion. The transmitter is easily integrated in all common control and asset management systems.
