Multichannel DIN Rail or Chassis Mount Signal Conditioner for Industrial or Medical Applications
The compact FOTEMP-T2 (formerly Insulogix T2) is a multichannel fiber optic thermometry system suitable for the end user or OEM applications. Together with the TS series fiber optic temperature sensors, the FOTEMP-T2 thermometer system is the ideal solution for monitoring multiple sensors in microwave, high frequency, high voltage, magnetic or aggressive environments where metal temperature sensors (RTC, TC, etc.) are either inaccurate or hazardous.
The measurement principle is based on the inherent optical properties of gallium arsenide (GaAs) with temperature. The TS series sensors are offered in different configuration optimized for a a particular operating environment or application – food, process industries, microwave, harsh chemical, and medical.
The fiber optic thermometer FOTEMP-T2 is available with up to 16 measurement channels. With a built-in USB interface as standard, the product offers a second interface option of either RS485/ModbusRTU or Ethernet/ModbusTCP. The product includes up to eight 4-20mA analog outputs and four programmable control relays. Real-time data collection via USB is accomplished with the supplied copy of the FOTEMP-ASSISTANT graphical display/data logging software. Software support for National Instruments LabView™ and Python scripts for Modbus system interfacing are available. An update rate of 250ms per active channel allows for fast response.
|Number of Channels||
4, 8, 12 or 16
Note: USB interface can only access up to 8 channels. Modbus can access all channels.
|Power Supply||24 VDC, Max 40 W|
-200°C to +300°C
NOTE: Actual measurement range depends on calibration option chosen and temperature range of selected TS sensor.
|Accuracy||Factory Calibration: ±0.2°C (1σ)
One-Point Calibration: ±0.5°C (1σ)
|Measuring Time per Channel||250 ms per active channel (1 sec update rate for 4 channels, 2 sec update rate for 8 channels, etc.)
NOTE: Disable unused channels using supplied FOTEMP-Assistant software
