1. What is a transmitter?
They are also called transmitters, transducers, signal converters or simply transducers. They are used to convert physical measurands such as temperature, humidity, differential pressure, etc. into standardized electrical signals.In a temperature transmitter, the measurand to be converted is temperature.The input signal is a resistance value for resistance-based temperature probes and a voltage value for thermocouples. The output signal is usually either 0 ... 10 V or 4 ... 20 mA. Historically, however, there are also 0-1 V / 0-5 V or 0-20 mA signals.
2. What are screw-in transmitters with head and what are they used for?
Our screw-in temperature transmitters with terminal head form B measure the temperature and output it as a standardized signal (4 - 20mA or 0 - 10 V). For use in process measurement technology, they measure the temperature in gaseous or liquid media. Temperatures up to 600 °C can be recorded in pipelines, vessels or plants.
3. What types of screw-in transmitters with heads are there and what are the differences between them?
There are different types of screw-in transmitters with head. We offer our screw-in transmitters with connection head form B and different output signals.
In the active temperature probes the sensor Pt1000 class B is installed and you can choose between an output of 4-20 mA or 0-10 V.
Configuration of the items
For these temperature transmitters, you can determine which mounting length you need and thus determine the immersion depth for these items. Our protection sleeves are made of stainless steel 1.4571 | 316TI. We offer the following mounting lengths (in mm): 200, 250, 300 and 400.
You can also choose the screw connection of the connection head. We offer the following screw connections: Cable gland, M12 plug connector, pressure screw.
4. How to install and use screw-in temperature transmitter with head?
Screw-in temperature transmitters with head can be installed and configured easily and quickly. By DIP switch, you can quickly set your required measuring range. The neck tube with G1/2 " thread allows them to be inserted into the process permanently, pressure proof and vibration resistant, making them ideal for temperature measurement.
5. What are the advantages of screw-in head transmitters compared to other types of transmitter systems?
Screw-in temperature transmitters have many advantages, such as accurate measurement, easy installation and integration into existing systems, high durability and reliability.
6. What features and specifications should be considered when selecting a screw-in head transmitter?
Factors such as measurement range, output signal, power supply, and environmental conditions should be considered when selecting a screw-in transmitter. With our DIP switches, you have a choice of eight measuring ranges at temperatures from -20 °C to 600 °C. For temperature measurement the Pt1000 class B sensor is used.
As output we offer the voltage output 0-10 V and the current output 4-20 mA. The ambient temperature of the transmitters is between -30 °C and +70 °C. The power supply is 24 V AC ⁄ DC (± 10 %) for the voltage variant and 15 - 36 V DC for the current variant.
