T24 transmitter modules collect data from industrial sensors including load, pressure, torque, strain, temperature, pulse, potentiometer and 4-20 mA / 0-10 V conditioned sensors and send it wirelessly.
Wireless base stations collect and configure data from T24 radio telemetry modules. Free software provides simplified configuration, logging and visualisations for Windows PCs.
Wireless data can be displayed on large LED displays or via portable handheld devices.
Wireless receivers allow for data output to devices such as printers, loggers, PLCs and displays.
Battery life is comparable with the T24 range and the battery calculator found here will give an idea of what to expect.
Zone 0 – Permanently or frequently hazardous over long periods.
Zone 1 – Occasionally hazardous.
Zone 2 – Rarely or temporarily hazardous.
Safe Zone – No hazard.
No! The devices are all ATEX certified only with Energiser L91 lithium AA batteries. Fortunately these are readily available around the world.
If you are using the OEM board, refer to the manual for power supply requirements.
No! The device needs to be moved to the safe zone before changing batteries.
Its only as complicated as you make it. Out of the box you just need to select the group key and radio channel to receive all X24/T24 transmitters in that group.
The buzzer used for Overload indication and keypad feedback has an output level of 45dBA.
As power cycling of the X24 modules is not permitted in the hazardous area then pairing to a base station can be achieved by using the Toolkit’s manual pairing method, which is available from the home screen. See the “click here” button found just below the Pair button.
It is expected that the pairing between the hand held X24-HD and the X24 acquisition module would be established whilst in the safe area.
No, you would need to take the equipment out of the EX area to set it up or change the batteries.
That is correct, the T24-SAe is permanently connected to the ANT-A antenna. The cable has a fixed cable length of 45 mm.
No, providing the instructions in the manual are followed and the ‘specific conditions of use’ (ATEX) or the ‘conditions of certification’ (IECEx) are adhered to.
Providing the batteries have the required component approval then the choice of batteries need not be limited to the Energizer L91 Lithium Batteries.
The resistance of the strain gauge can be between 85 and 5000 ohms.
The strain gauge measurement is bi-directional ranging from -3.2mV/V to +3.2mV/V making it suitable for tension and compression load cells.
It is only certified to be used with internal AA Energizer L91 batteries
The resistance of the strain gauge can be between 85 and 5000 Ohms. The X24-SAe can support up to four 350 Ohm strain gauge bridges attached in paralell (at the expense of reduced battery life).
