The 7501 HART temperature transmitter delivers HART 7 functionality with HART 5 compatibility and can be configured to measure two-, three-, and four-wire RTDs, 13 different thermocouple types, and bipolar mV and resistance signals. It also provides an analog output. The field-mounted Ex d explosion- and flameproof temperature transmitter has a local operator interface for programming, reviewing, and diagnosing process values in the field.
A user can configure the transmitter from the front of the housing in any environment by simply touching the optical buttons, even when wearing gloves. He or she can also perform advanced HART programming from the front, and as a result, significantly reduce the need for handheld communicators. The 60-mm high-definition display clearly indicates the process magnitude, supported by a radial bar graph in real time.
The transmitter has three mounting options: on the temperature sensor, on a pipe, or on a bulkhead. Configuration is logical, with scrolling help texts and three optical buttons: up arrow, down arrow, and OK. With the help of the PR menu guide, it is possible to configure the device in less than 1 minute.
