Silbus Single Channel Temperature Transmitter

Austdac Silbus 1 Channel Temperature Transmitter SILBUS-TX1T


The single channel temperature transmitter is part of a family of explosion protected DIN rail mounting modules that transmit to and receive from an Austdac SILBUS field bus network. The SILBUS-TX1T can transmit a single temperature value on an independent valid SILBUS channel.

The single temperature input is designed to work with a standard two, three or four wire PT100 temperature sensor. The temperature transmitter can be configured to operate on one two temperature ranges, -10ºC to +100ºC or -20ºC to +200ºC. This makes the SILBUSTX1T particularly suited to monitoring bearing or similar plant temperatures via the SILBUS network without any requirements for additional power.

The transmitter is housed within a DIN rail mounting enclosure measuring 45mm (W) x 75mm (H) x 110mm (D). The front panel is located between the two top of enclosure
mounted terminal blocks to provide a clear view of the operation indicating LED. A single LED is provided to show SILBUS network status.

The SILBUS-TX1T can be quickly and simply configured using a laptop computer running Hyper Terminal and a small plug in programming adaptor. The single temperature input can be programmed to any SILBUS channel address. The temperature input can also have it’s over range, hysteresis, digital set point alarm channels and analogue transmission protocol configured by the user.
