TURCK's new line of
temperature transmitters, the TTM series, features an analog output that
eliminates the need for specialized RTD PLC input cards. The transmitters'
stainless steel connections make them suitable in the food and beverage arena.
The TTM series have a 4-20 mA output using an integrated PT100 resistance
temperature detector. TTM series sensors are plug-and-play and come pre-scaled
at 0 to 100C, 0 to 150C, -50 to 50C or -50 to 150C.
