Omega introduces wireless thermocouple connector series

By Control Engineering Staff August 14, 2007
The UWTC Series offers programming versatility.

Omega Engineering’s new wireless thermocouple connectors/converters, the Smart Connector UWTC Series, provides stand-alone, compact, battery-powered thermocouple connectors that transmit linearized, cold junction compensated measurements back to a USB-powered receiver connected to a PC. Each connector unit is programmable in the field to work as a type J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, or C calibration connector.

A patented universal input accepts standard and miniature size mating connectors. The connector will transmit data continuously at different user-selectable time intervals.

Up to 12 wireless connectors can be used with a single receiver. A software program is included to convert a PC into a 12-channel meter, strip chart recorder and datalogger. Readings can be retained and printed out later or exported to a spreadsheet.

Starting price for an Omega Engineering Smart Connector UWTC Series wireless, battery-powered thermocouple connector is $125.
