A wireless interface system for connecting a battery powered sensor signal conditioning module to a computer via a central receiver.
The Z-HEAD universal input ZigBee transmitter can accept a wide range of inputs from most process measurement devices and transmits the measured variable to a 2.4GHz ZigBee receiver unit.
The Z-HEAD is specifically designed to maximise battery life and in a typical application the battery life can exceed 5 years.
The data update rate is user selectable to suit the requirement of each measured variable and so maximise battery life.
Typical update rates include 1 second, 10 seconds, 60 seconds or 1 hour. The system also features a signal strength reading and time since last transmission which can be remotely monitored.
The unit mounts in most standard process connection heads and complete assemblies are available for RTD, themocouple, pressure and level sensors.
The Z-HEAD is designed to operate with the Z-200 or Z-PORT units. The Z-200 can output a 4-20mA or 0-10V signal whilst the Z-PORT can store up to 1024 variables for transmission to an industrial Ethernet connection or a USB, RS232 or RS485 communications link.
