United Electric Controls Co. has introduced the TX200H, a HART® smart pressure transmitter for shale oil and gas applications. The transmitter provides a small footprint to fit the tight confines necessary for these applications and uses the latest HART 7 specifications, communicating asset management data while providing simplified field adjustment.
A flexible 10-to-1 turndown on the pressure ranges from 0 to 15 PSI (0 to 1 bar) up to 0 to 25,000 PSI (0 to 1,724 bar), allowing the transmitter to be ranged as needed. The transmitter is constructed of 316 stainless steel, welded, and hermetically sealed to meet enclosure type 4X and IP66 requirements. It can be mounted directly onto the processes or panel-mounted within the control panel.
Standard approvals include cULus for Class 1, Div. 1 & 2, Zone 1 and ATEX Ex d and Ex tD hazardous areas. It is CE-compliant to both PED and EMC directives. The transmitter's real-time diagnostics through HART 7 are designed to reduce maintenance costs by reporting device health status and process performance, alerting users to potential problems.
Integrating the transmitter into most process systems is simple, says the company. HART communication is superimposed over the 4-20-mA signal, so the transmitter can use existing wiring, becoming an upgraded, drop-in replacement for a standard analog 4-20-mA transmitter. Users can communicate with the transmitter using a hand-held device or a PC equipped with commercially available HART software.
