Using wireless technology, engineers can measure critical data in remote locations within a manufacturing environment without running wires. With Yokogawa’s YTMX580 multi-input temperature transmitter, they can make several measurements. The battery-powered unit has eight analog
input channels, each configurable for thermocouple, resistive temperature detector (RTD), DC voltage and 4-20 mA measurements.
Operating within a frequency range of 2400-2483.5 MHz and a temperature range of -40 to 85°C, the transmitter accepts Pt100, Pt200, Pt500 (IEC751) RTD probes in 2-, 3- and 4-wire configurations. In addition, it can handle B, E, J, K, N, R, S and T (IEC584) thermocouples as well as DC voltages from -10 to 100 mV or -0.01 to 1V.
