Thermocouple Virtual Chart Recorder
Product Announcement from Newport Electronics, Inc.
The NEWPORT® iTCX transmitter let's you monitor Temperature from two independent Thermocouple channels over an Ethernet network or the Internet with no special software except a Web Browser.
The NEWPORT iTCX serves Active Web Pages to display real time readings, temperature charts, or log data in standard data formats for use in a spreadsheet or data acquisition program such as Excel or Visual Basic.
The virtual chart viewed on the web page is a JAVA™ Applet that plots a chart over the LAN or Internet in real time. With the NEWPORT iTCX, there is no need to invest time and money learning a proprietary software program to log or chart the data.
The iTCX is available in an industrial DIN rail package (iTCX-D) that is powered by 10-32 Vdc, and in a benchtop or wall mount package (iTCX-W) with an included universal (100-240 Vac) power adapter.
Chart scales are fully adjustable on the fly. For example, the chart can display one minute, one hour, one day, one week, one month or one year. Temperature can be charted across the full span, or within any narrow range such as 20-30°C.
You can chart temperature from one thermocouple, two thermocouples, and/or the differential between the two.
The iTCX transmitters can take Thermocouple Types J, K, T, E, R, S, B, C, N, and L measuring temperatures up to 1,820°C (3,308°F). The iTCX can display and chart absolute measurements in two locations and a differential measurement between the two locations.
The NEWPORT iTCX is simple to install and use, and features NEWPORT's award-winning iServer technology that requires no special software except a Web Browser. The iTCX connects to an Ethernet Network with a standard RJ45 connector and sends data in standard TCP/IP packets. It is easily configured with a simple menu using a Web Browser and can be password protected. From within an Ethernet LAN or over the Internet, the user simply types its IP address or an easy to remember name in any Web Browser, and the iTCX serves a Web Page with the current readings.
The NEWPORT iTCX can send an email or text message reporting the status or an alarm condition over the Internet to any individual or distribution list.
NEWPORT iServer products are designed and manufactured in Santa Ana, California.
