Product Announcement from Hamilton Co.
More than simply sensors, ARC Sensors are the complete solution: innovative premium quality sensors with a robust, direct, and standard interface to the PLC. Hamilton ARC Sensors send a 4-20 mA signal directly to an analog process control system while delivering at the same time the power of digital sensor management.
Classic sensors produce weak, temperamental signals that require a separate transmitter to amplify the signal before connecting to the process control system. With ARC Sensors a technology has been developed that replaces the need for transmitters. The ARC Senso's built-in electronics convert the low amperage measurement signal and enables several unique sensor functions. Apart from the direct analog connectivity, ARC Sensors offer a digital connection that delivers superior data integrity, increased productivity and longer life cycles. ARC Sensors are far less prone to interruption in challenging production environments than classical sensors.
ARC Sensors are available with both standard analog (4-20mA) and digital ModBus interfaces built-in and supported directly from the sensor itself.
