Product Exclusive: United Electric Controls TX200H, HART 7 smart pressure transmitter

Designed for upstream oil and gas applications, the TX200H simplifies field adjustments and communicates asset management data via the latest HART 7 specification. This is an April 2011 Control Engineering Product Exclusive.


United Electric ControlsUnited Electric Controls introduces the TX200H, a HART 7 smart pressure transmitter designed for upstream oil and gas applications. The TX200H provides simplified field adjustments while reliably communicating asset management data using the latest HART 7 specification.

A flexible 10:1 turndown on pressure ranges from 0 to 15 psi up to 0 to 25,000 psi allow users to range the transmitter as application requirements change while reducing inventory levels through model reduction. The TX200H real-time diagnostics also reduce maintenance costs by reporting device health status and process performance, alerting users to potential problems to troubleshoot before escalation occurs. 

TX200H is constructed of 316 stainless steel, welded and hermetically sealed to meet enclosure type 4X and IP66 requirements. Its rugged, compact design lends itself to being mounted directly onto the process or panel mounted within a control panel. Standard approvals include cULus for Class I, Div. 1 and 2, Zone 1 and ATEX Ex d and Ex tD hazardous areas. It is CE compliant to PED and EMC directives.   

Integrating the TX200H into most process systems is simple. Since HART communication is superimposed over the 4-20 mA signal, the TX200H can use existing wiring as an upgraded, drop-in replacement for a standard analog 4-20 mA transmitter. A user may easily communicate with the TX200H using a handheld device or a PC equipped with commercially available software.
