Upgraded Transmitters for Hazardous Areas

Published on: 

Sensonics has added IECEx and UKEx certification, alongside ATEX certification, for its Senturion X DNX803 series transmitters. These upgraded shaft vibration and axial position transmitters are approved for installation and use in hazardous areas with potentially explosive atmospheres (gases) or dusts. The DNX8031 (shaft vibration) and DNX8033 (shaft position) proximity probe transmitters are suitable for above ground applications when used in conjunction with Sensonics XPR eddy current type proximity probes and XEC cables.

These 4-20mA loop powered modules provide easy integration with either the local machine PLC or a plant wide DCS since it’s powered through the safety barrier measurement loop. All signal processing is carried out within the unit providing an output current proportional to either peak-to-peak shaft vibration or relative position to the probe face. The module permits the adjustment of both gain and offset for ease of calibration to suit the application. Smaller pumps, centrifugal air compressors, motors and fans will particularly benefit from the upgraded DNX803 series.
