Phoenix Contact USA Posted 09/06/2013Phoenix Contact introduces Universal Software-Programmable Temperature Transducers
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – The MINI Analog family from Phoenix Contact now includes two universal software-programmable temperature transducers. These transducers convert and condition signals from most of the common resistance temperature detectors (RTD), as well as thermocouple temperature sensors.
The new transducers offer a wide power circuit input range of 9.6 to 30 V DC, making for easy implementation into battery powered or remote systems. Their low transmission error of 0.1 percent means high level accuracy for the customer. The transducers are compatible with sensors with customer-specific temperature curves and sensors that meet international standards.
The MINI Analog family has a 6.2-mm thin housing and T-bus power bus capabilities that save space and drastically reduce installation time. The hot-swappable signal conditioning slices simply clip to the powering T-bus connector without the need to remove bus bars or bridging. Optional quick cabling solutions are also available to interface the MINI Analog modules to controllers, greatly reducing installation time.
