Used for system monitoring and control, temperature transmitters work in tandem with a temperature sensor (thermocouple or RTD) and transmit a signal to controllers, PLCs, DCS, recorders, or data-loggers. Duro-Sense head-mounted temperature transmitters eliminate long runs of costly field wiring in a variety of temperature control applications, and eliminates voltage drops, multiple cold junction errors and noise pickup. The transmitters can be mounted in any Duro-Sense sensor head, providing excellent stability over the wide operating ambient temperature ranges.
A temperature transmitter is generally described as a device, which on the input side is connected to some sort of temperature sensor and on the output side generates a signal that is amplified and modified in different ways. Normally the output signal is directly proportional to the measured temperature within a defined measurement range. Many additional features can be added depending on the type of transmitter being used. The features of the temperature transmitter are often described by using different terms with respect to technology, mounting method, functions, etc. The following list is a brief summary of these terms.
Analog Transmitters: These transmitters are designed on analog circuit technology. They normally offer basic functions such as temperature linearization and sensor break technology. Sometimes they are adjustable for different measuring ranges, often with a fast response time.
Digital Transmitters: This transmitter type is mainly based on a microprocessor. They are often called intelligent transmitters, because they normally offer many extra features, which are not possible to realize in analog transmitters.
In-Head Transmitters: These transmitters are designed for mounting in the connection heads of temperature sensors. All Duro-Sense in-head transmitters fit into DIN B heads or larger. Special care has to be devoted to the ruggedness because of the harsh conditions that sometimes exist.
