Wireless Instrumentation
Temperature Field Unit

 
The RTD Temperature Field Unit comes complete with a signal conditioner and a RF transceiver operating in the 902 MHz to 928 MHz ISM licensefree band. It is battery powered with up to twenty (20) year battery life. Sensors may be integrated (-I), or split (-S) packages. The split architecture package includes one or two discrete contact closure inputs for simple apparatus. The split sensor option enables easy field replacement of probes. One sensor input is available with the split RTD sensor package. Data from the sensor is transmitted to the Base Radio for centralized monitoring and data acquisition. You may specify updates between once per second and once per minute based on your monitoring and control needs. The RTD is included in the integrated version of the RTD Temperature Field Unit, Model WI-RT-I. The standard probe is a 4 wire DIN curve 100 O platinum RTD. Probes are available with either spring loaded or direct insertion fitting with probe lengths of 2.5," 4.5", 6" or 9". Custom RTD lengths can be provided on a special order basis, however non standard probes should use the split architecture. With the split architecture, the RTD is not included with sensor unit and it can be easily replaced in the field. 

 
 
RTD Options
  • Several RTD curves are embedded in the microprocessor including: DIN 100 O platinum, SAMA 100 O platinum, DIN 1000 O platinum and Special curves. A 22 point offset function is available for non standard curve programming and precision trimming of temperature value.
