The One Series 1XTXSW transmitter from United Electric Controls is the first to integrate HART 7 compatible 4-20 mA output and two solid-state programmable relays for monitoring temperature or pressure in safety, alarm and emergency shutdown applications.United Electric Controls’ One Series 1XTXSW transmitter line integrates HART 7 compatible 4 to 20 mA output and two solid-state programmable relays for monitoring temperature or pressure in safety, alarm and emergency shutdown applications. These smart transmitters also include United Electric’s “I am working” (IAW) discrete diagnostic output for remote monitoring from a PLC or DCS. A large back-lit display provides process values, set point programming, and health and switch status notifications. The controller actuates external relays, which accordingly switch devices on or off for safety, alarm and shutdown functions.

The One Series 1XTXSW hybrid transmitter-switch effectively replaces a gauge, a switch and a transmitter requiring only one connection to the process. This reduces costs and potential media leaks while increasing reliability. The One Series has no moving parts, which provides a repeatable and adjustable deadband switch that is ideal for applications with high cycle rates. The One Series 1XTXSW transmitters are designed to operate in hazardous and harsh monitoring conditions that involve temperature extremes and high pressures that rapidly change, exhibiting pulsations, water hammer and thermal cycling and other wear inducing conditions.
