Omega’s TX-M12 series of temperature transmitter (-200 to 850 C and -328 to 1862 F) are housed in a rugged stainless steel enclosure and provide fast, secure and watertight connections for both the sensor and the instrumentation. At a fraction of the size of standard head-mounted transmitters measuring 38 mm diameter with a height of 20 mm and weighing 100 grams, they are ideally suited to a broad range of applications including process control and monitoring equipment.
They can accept a variety of resistance sensors, including Pt100, Pt500 and Pt1000, Ni100, Ni1000 and variable resistance up to 10,000 ohms. The integral M12 connectors maintain IP67 protection, whilst allowing for a quick and simple change of sensor. Two outputs are available with either 4-20mA or 0-10Vdc with an accuracy of ± 0.2 C + 0.05% of reading. Default scaling for the output is 0 to 100 C and other ranges can be specified at the time of purchase. It is also possible for the user to scale the transmitter in the field by programming the device with the optional USB module that is supplied with free software.
