Moore TMZ Dual temperature transmitter
July 25, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jul. 25, 2017 – Moore Industries’ TMZ Dual (2TPRG) PC-programmable Modbus temperature transmitter promises to help users increase density and reduce costs with dual RTD, thermocouple, mV, resistance or potentiometer inputs by doubling temperature monitoring capability in a single unit.
The Dual TMZ’s two independent sensor inputs are easy to configure using a free copy of Intelligent PC Configuration software available for download from Moore’s website, says the company. The data from both sensors is available on the Modbus output, allowing the host to use the data for averaging, differential or sensor backup. Up to 32 (without repeaters) TMZs or TMZ Duals can be multi-dropped onto a single communication link (such as a twisted wire pair), which Moore says will eliminate the need to run a dedicated wire for each signal. The TMZ Dual claims to provide increased sensor density, “delivering even more savings on installation, cable, conduit, connection and wire tray costs.” Both the TMZ and TMZ Dual boast five-year stability, 20-bit input resolution, isolation and RFI/EMI protection.
