ABB Endura 2 wire, 24 V dc analytical transmitter

ABB's Endura line of analytical transmitters uses ABB’s common component platform. Buttons, menus, and display icons in these new products are very similar to the familiar design of current ABB flow, pressure, or temperature instrumentation. Endura transmitters are easy to configure with no handheld devices or magnets needed for programming. To program, an operator positions a finger over each button through a glass window. ABB says it is the first company to successfully market a 2 wire, 24 V dc explosion proof (Exd) transmitter using capacitive touch technology.

ABB Endura 2 wire, 24 V dc analytical transmitterABB's new Endura line of analytical transmitters uses ABB’s common component platform. Buttons, menus, and display icons in these new products are very similar to the familiar design of current ABB flow, pressure, or temperature instrumentation. Endura transmitters are easy to configure with no handheld devices or magnets needed for programming.

To program, an operator positions a finger over each button through a glass window. ABB says it is the first company to successfully market a 2 wire, 24 V dc explosion proof (Exd) transmitter using capacitive touch technology. The transmitter can be programmed without removing the cover, avoiding any exposure of the internal circuit boards to moisture. Endura APA592 pH / Redox (ORP) transmitters are designed to be compatible across the range of ABB’s existing sensor offerings.

Transmitters are HART-enabled as standard, to provide access to all parameters from the control room, with DTM and EDD platforms supported. Profibus PA and Foundation Fieldbus communication versions will be launched soon. The transmitter has automatic buffer recognition to speed up calibration, avoiding the need to program the buffer values each time the sensor is calibrated. Wire the sensor, power up the transmitter, and it detects the style of temperature sensor connected; it automatically recognizes PT100, PT1000, and 3K Balco temperature sensors in 2 wire and 3 wire designs.
