A new digital temperature transmitter offering a variety of sensor connection combinations and a new type of drift detection, is designed to enable extremely flexible and stable temperature measurement.

The model T38 digital temperature transmitter from WIKA includes head-mounted and rail-mounted versions in safety integrity level, or SIL, and explosion-proof, or Ex, versions.

The temperature transmitter was fully developed in accordance with IEC 61508 standards and is intended for general application, allowing users to monitor processes more efficiently.

In addition to a number of standard sensor characteristic curves, the T38 also includes WIKA's newly developed True Drift Detection. This function immediately signals any deviation of the measured value from the characteristic curve.

The T38 has six sensor connection terminals that can be configured according to specific requirements, giving users the option of a range of combinations. The head-mounted transmitter encompasses specially designed trapezoidal terminals with a large clamping area and external access, to simplify the connection of sensors and the current loop.

All variants of the new transmitter can be programmed using the HART protocol with several open configuration tools. The T38 can also be parameterised by means of the universal serial bus, or USB, interface using the PU-548 programming unit and WIKAsoft-TT software.
