Engineered-to-order sensors

Specialty, customized temperature sensors include the four most requested by users. They include engineered-to-order Sample probes for extracting representative samples from a process; Multipoint sensors for temperature profiling at points over distance; Tubeskin thermocouples that measure tube wall temperatures to determine tube life, temperature trending and coke buildup; and High-temp assemblies for temperatures above 2,000 °F (1,093.3 °C).


Non-contact scanning imaging, analysis

MP Linescanner series delivers continuous, accurate, edge-to-edge thermal images and temperature measurements for high-speed manufacturing processes. They also provide real-time imaging at scans speeds up to 300 Hz, and feature Fluke’s widest selection of spectral and temperature ranges. MP measures up to 1,024 temperature points across a scan line at a rate of up to 300 lines per second, allowing users to better control continuous moving processes, automate temperature measurements, and ensure product quality.

Wireless sensors, cloud connectivity

Layer N SS-001 wireless smart sensors with cloud connectivity from Omega Engineering use internal sensing elements to measure environmental, temperature, humidity and pressure conditions. Layer N sensors are easily paired to the Layer N gateway with the press of a button. SS-001 uses Sub GHz frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology to ensure robust, long range communications. Transmission ranges of up to 3.2 km can be achieved when powered by a standard 5V micro USB cable.


Smart HART for humidity and heat

HTZ Smart HART humidity and temperature transmitter simultaneously measures temperature and humidity, eliminating the cost of using multiple transmitters. HART communications, reported to be an industry first for a humidity transmitter, allow the unit to be programmed or queried from anywhere on one of the transmitter’s dual 4-20 mA loops. The accuracy of its relative humidity measurements is up to ±0.75% RH, temperature measurements is up to ±0.036 °C, and dewpoint calculation is within ±0.5 °C.

Purge, pressurize in hazardous areas

7500 series purge and pressurization system lets conventional electrical equipment be used in hazardous areas. Devices that require protection are installed in an enclosure with a pressure higher than the surrounding hazardous atmosphere. 7500 series provides reliable protection in Class I and II/Div. 2 and Zone 2/22 hazardous locations. 7500 series also continuously monitors enclosure conditions, makes automatic adjustments, provides an output alarm for reliable protection and offers programmable temperature control.


Single, dual sensors for temperature

Sitrans TF field temperature transmitters with approvals for heavy industrial applications employ head-mounted TH320 (single sensor) and TH420 (dual sensor) as their foundation. TF320 and TF420 also provide a user-friendly, pushbutton-driven local interface for device configuration, transmitter and sensor diagnostics, and display of measured values. They're available with single- or dual-compartment housings, and feature an enclosure for any installation in any environment.


Hazardous areas smart switch

One Series smart, electronic switch is designed for intrinsically safe, explosion-proof and non-incendive classified areas. This hybrid switch/transmitter's models can handle pressures up to 6,000 psi, differential pressure up to 200 psid, and -300 °F to 1,000 °F temperatures. Outputs are one switch with a solid-state relay, dual solid-state relay with HART, or HART and 4-20 mA signals only. Setpoint and deadband are adjustable for alarming and emergency shutdowns. I Am Working (IAW) self-diagnostics monitor its health.

Starter kits for monitoring pilots

SmartSolutions starter kits create temperature and pressure monitoring pilots that solve local issues or scale to a full, smart monitoring network. Reported to be complete and cost-effective, these kits require no IT or infrastructure changes. They provide fast commissioning, data transmission to a configurable dashboard, and 90 days of prepaid cellular and cloud services. Users can set alerts and notifications on pneumatic, hydraulic, fluid or HVAC systems, and gain insight into ambient temperature and humidity.

Superheated steam compensation

Rosemount 8800 MultiVariable vortex flowmeter has full mass compensation to measure mass flow in superheated steam areas. Its all-cast, all-welded meter body eliminates ports and crevices, ensuring low leak potential and eliminating impulse lines that can plug or clog. Rosemount 8800's temperature sensor is isolated from the vortex sensor to enable verification or replacement of each sensor without breaking the process seal. Its temperature and pressure compensation eliminates the need for a flow computer.

28 types for loop-power, dual-sensor

MACX MCR-TS-I-OLP loop-powered, dual-sensor temperature transmitter with HART supports more than 28 different temperature sensors. It accepts -20 mV to 100 mV, and linear resistance ranges from 10 ohms to 2K ohms. On the output side, it features a dedicated 4-20 mA signal with HART communication. At only 12.5 mm wide on the DIN rail, MACX MCR-TS-I-OLP is thin, but its wide operating temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C makes it widely usable. EX and non-EX versions can be ordered and preconfigured.
