Sep. 22, 2017 – Mettler Toledo Process Analytics has launched a new version of its multi-parameter M400 transmitter series for process analytics applications.
The updated version M400 features a combined touchscreen and tactile soft-key user interface, says Mettler Toledo, adding that the high-contrast screen permits viewing in all light conditions and the soft keys allow operation even if protective gloves are being worn. The series is compatible with analogue sensors and Mettler Toledo’s digital Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) probes. ISM features boast advanced sensor diagnostic tools that can be displayed on the M400 and accessed remotely via asset management software. The HART communication protocol provides integration of the diagnostics into process control systems. In addition, ISM sensors can be calibrated away from the process in any convenient location, then connected to the M400 which will set itself up appropriately. A software tool supplied with the transmitter enables configuration of the M400 via PC and USB stick. The configuration can then be shared among other M400s.
