Temperature Transmitters (4-20mA), also known as thermocouple temperature transmitter, or thermal resistance temperature transmitter, are sensors with an electrical transmission output.
From wall mounted to PC programmable, to LCD Display, to intrinsically safe models,
there are a variety of transmitters to choose from.
Sino-Instrument’s economical devices provide accuracy and reliability at the lowest possible cost.
Features of temperature transmitter 4-20mA
- Ultra-small (module φ44×18) integration, strong versatility
- Two-wire system 4~20mA DC output. The transmission distance is long and the anti-interference ability is strong.
- Cold end, temperature drift, non-linear automatic compensation.
- High measurement accuracy and good long-term stability.
- The temperature module is internally filled with epoxy resin casting technology,
- which is suitable for use in various harsh and dangerous places.
- Integrated design, simple and reasonable structure, can directly replace the ordinary assembled thermocouple, thermal resistance.
- Mechanical protection IP65
- Using thermocouple temperature change, can eliminate the use of compensation wires, reduce costs
- LCD, digital tube, pointer and other indication functions are convenient for on-site monitoring.
- When the ambient temperature is >70 °C,
- the transmitter and field display instrument can be installed in separate (isolated) mode.
SI-SBW integrated temperature transmitter 4-20mA
SBWR thermocouple temperature transmitter,
and SBWZ thermal resistance temperature transmitter,
are field-mounted temperature transmitter units,
in thermocouple and thermal resistance series instruments.
The SI-SBW series integrated temperature transmitter,
is a perfect combination of temperature sensor and transmitter.
It converts the temperature signal in the range of -200~+1600 °C,
into two-wire 4~20mA DC signal transmission in a very simple way.
Accurate measurement and control of temperature for displays, regulators, recorders, DCS, etc.
