Maxim Integrated has announced the Novato smart temperature-transmitter reference design that is able to transmit temperature measurement over -200°C to 850°C range with better than ±0.1 percent accuracy. According to the company, the device will allow factories to easily, and very accurately, measure and transmit industrial temperatures with the Novato (MAXREFDES16#) reference design.

Temperature is among the most widely measured parameters in industrial process control and automation applications. Consuming less than 3.2mA, the Novato reference design transmits temperature measurements from remote sensors to the central control unit over a 4-20mA current-loop using the highway addressable remote transducer (HART) communication protocol.


CAPTION: The Novato reference design accurately measures and transmits industrial temperatures.

Novato's flexible design supports 2-, 3- or 4-wire resistance temperature detector (RTD) sensor inputs and works with any type of RTDs, from PT100 to PT1000, making it ideal for a variety of industrial applications, indicated the company.

Pricing starts at $99. The device fits into a DIN size B head-mounting enclosure (<40mm diameter) to meet field sensor needs.
