The THZ3 and TDZ3 mark the next generation of Smart HART temperature transmitters from Moore Industries. They feature industry-leading durability and reliability combined with new features that increase usability and functionality including a new dual sensor input.

These transmitters provide an isolated and linear 4-20 mA output proportional to input and configure easily to accept a direct signal input from a wide array of sensors and analog devices. Users can build custom curves with up to 128 points for non-standard or special inputs.

Dual Input: Dual sensor input means that you get backup and fail-over protection because the transmitters allow either of the sensors or inputs to be designated as the primary measurement, with the secondary input acting as a backup sensor in case of primary sensor failure. Unlike other dual-input transmitters, the THZ3 and TDZ3 offer auto-recovery after a fail-over event by automatically re-designating the new sensor as the PV without operator intervention. Additional dual input features include:

• Average and Differential measurement

• High-Select and Low-Select

• Dynamic Variable Mapping

Advanced Control and Monitoring: The THZ3 and TDZ3 come with Device Intelligence, a series of features for smarter control and monitoring including sensor drift, corrosion detection, smart range alarms and a high availability option.
