Long-distance temperature points

Measure multiple temperature points in distant plant locations with the YTMX580, a wireless multi-input temperature transmitter from Yokogawa Corp.


Measure multiple temperature points in distant plant locations with the YTMX580, a wireless multi-input temperature transmitter from Yokogawa Corp.

The battery powered instrument is built on the on ISA100.11a, an industrial automation wireless communication standard and has eight analogue input channels, each configurable for thermocouple, RTD, DCV and 4-20mA measurement.

The YTMX580 measures temperature points in plants where there’s no signal cabling or power available for traditional wired instrumentation and the input channels reduce installation time and maintenance costs by combining multiple inputs into a single transmitter.

Temperature data is sent via a secure wireless link to an ISA100.11a gateway receiver, making data available to a wide range of plant instruments and data acquisition and control systems.

Yokogam, a Sugar Land, Tex. manufacturer of instrumentation, is promoting the standard and proposing the use of field digital networks that help companies achieve an ideal plant configuration by organically integrating wireless technology with existing wired communications networks.
