Transmit Temperatures

April 1, 2005
The Series DX DeviceNet Temperature Transmitter is a compact, four-channel, DIN-mounted unit that is designed to bring IEEE 1451.4 smart sensing technology capabilities to sensor networks.

It is billed by the vendor as the only IEEE 1451.4 compliant device capable of collecting, converting and broadcasting temperature sensor data over a DeviceNet network. Each Series DX DeviceNet Temperature Transmitter is individually tested and calibrated for optimum accuracy and allows all of the latest sensor technologies based on the IEEE 1451.4 protocol to be accessible to most PLCs, networks and LabView applications. Up to 63 Series DX DeviceNet Temperature Transmitters can be grouped together, which allows up to 250 temperature sensors to be networked on a single DeviceNet cable, depending on desired network speed.
