Moore THZ3 HART temperature transmitter includes Associated Intrinsically-Safe sensor connections
November 28, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Nov. 28, 2017 – Moore Industries says its new THZ3 compact Dual Input Smart HART temperature transmitter in DIN rail mount housing now includes Associated Intrinsically-Safe (AIS) sensor connections.
The AIS option allows direct connection of sensors located in hazardous areas since it includes an internal intrinsically-safe barrier in the front end of the THZ3, explains the company. The Universal mounting bracket snaps on and off of 35 mm Top Hat DIN-rails and standard relay tracks. The THZ3-DIN with the AIS option is an associated apparatus suitable for mounting in non-hazardous or Class I, Division 2/Zone 2 hazardous locations with sensor input terminals connected to equipment or sensors located in Class I, II, III, Division 1/Zone 0/1 hazardous locations. Blue connectors on the THZ3-DIN with AIS option provide a visual way to recognize the Associated IS capability. The dual-input THZ3-DIN with the AIS option promises to deliver reliability and accuracy, HART 7 compliance, 20 bit resolution, sensor failover and backup capability, device intelligence including Sensor Drift and Corrosion Detection, and Input Simulation capability.
