United Electric Controls (UE) introduces the TX200H, a HART® smart pressure transmitter for shale oil and gas applications. The TX200H provides a very small footprint to fit the tight confines necessary for these applications, and utilizing the latest HART 7 specifications, reliably communicate asset management data while providing simplified field adjustment. A flexible 10:1 turndown on the pressure ranges from 0 to 15 psi (0 to 1 bar) up to 0 to 25,000 psi (0 to 1724 bar) allow the TX200H transmitters to be ranged as needed to meet customer requirements. Typical ranges can ship quickly, in 2 weeks or less.
The TX200H is constructed of 316 stainless steel, welded and hermetically sealed to meet enclosure type 4X and IP66 requirements. Its rugged design lends itself to being 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. TX200H real-time diagnostics through HART 7 also reduce maintenance costs by reporting device health status and process performance, alerting users to potential problems to troubleshoot before escalation occurs.
Integrating the TX200H into most process systems is simple. Since HART communication is superimposed over the 4-20 mA signal, the TX200H can use existing wiring, becoming an upgraded, drop-in replacement for a standard analog 4-20 mA transmitter. A user may easily communicate with the TX200H utilizing a handheld device or a PC equipped with commercially available HART software.
