Smart Pressure Transmitter for Upstream Oil, Gas Applications

April 25, 2011

The TX200H is a HART® smart pressure transmitter designed for upstream oil and gas applications. The TX200H provides simplified field adjustment while reliably communicating asset management data utilizing the latest HART®7 specification. A flexible 10:1 turndown on pressure ranges from 0 to 15 psi (0 to 1 bar) up to 0 to 25,000 psi (0 to 1724 bar) allow users to range the transmitter as application requirements change while reducing inventory levels through model reduction. The TX200H real-time diagnostics also reduce maintenance costs by reporting device health status and process performance, alerting users to potential problems to troubleshoot before escalation occurs. 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 process 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.
