The UWXL Series industrial wireless transmitters from OMEGA offer flexibility for process measurement applications. Capable of ranges to 120m line of sight (LOS), the transmitters are designed for a variety of applications, including temperature, infrared temperature, relative humidity, process transducers with standard voltage or current outputs, flow (pulsed frequency) as well as pH. Thermocouple models are user configurable for any of 9 calibrations, while RTD units are compatible with both 0.00385 and 0.00392 curve Pt100 sensors.
The wireless transmitters are programmable to transmit data at intervals configurable from once every 2 seconds to every 2 minutes. Transmitted data includes the process measurement along with the ambient temperature, RF signal strength and battery condition. Software provided with each model can display this information in real time. This free software allows you to use your PC as a multi-channel meter, recorder or data logger; data can also be exported to a standard spreadsheet file.
The transmitters are compatible with a wide variety of OMEGA wireless receivers. UWTC-REC receivers are available with optional analogue output, alarms and display, while the UWXL-REC receivers add an IP68 rated enclosure. Receivers can accept up to 48 transmitters. Receivers with analogue outputs can also retransmit data through a wired connection, as an analogue voltage, current or thermocouple signal, to interface with a controller, PLC or data acquisition device.
The UWXL wireless transmitters will also work with the company's Wi800-U series scanners. These feature a 1/8 DIN panel mount indicator with 4 digit display and built-in wireless receiver. They will automatically scan up to 8 inputs from wireless transmitters. An alarm output can be triggered for any or all of the 8 channels or one channel can be configured for PID control output. Outputs available are 0.5A solid state relays (SSRs), 3A mechanical relays or 10Vdc pulse for controlling external SSR's.
