Transmitter for Process Monitoring

January 7, 2013

Sensorex CX-3000 TransmitterSensorex’s CX-3000 Transmitter monitors changes in process fluids, displaying conductivity, resistivity or salinity, along with temperature, for process control in water, chemical, electronics, food production, environmental and wastewater applications. The CX-3000 measures one of three critical process parameters: conductivity, resistivity or salinity. A simple push button interface enables user-programming on-site for desired monitoring, with a password protection option for added security. The CX-3000’s dual output design, with a dedicated (0)4 – 20mA output for temperature measurement, eliminates the need for a separate temperature transmitter. Its large backlit LCD screen displays selected parameter and temperature simultaneously. Conductivity is measured over an extended range of 0.000uS/cm – 200mS/cm for extreme applications. The resistivity measurement range extends from 0.00 – 20.00 M-Ohm/cm; salinity measurements cover from 0.0 – 70.0ppt. With a NEMA 4x, IP65 enclosure, the CX-3000 can be wall, panel, or pipe-mounted for easy integration in most installations. The line-powered unit meets 100-240 VAC power requirements for use internationally. Two adjustable Hi/Lo relay contacts deliver results to automated process control systems.
