8 Channel Scanning Temperature Monitor - TP488-RT

Supplier: Amalgamated Instrument Co

The TP488-RT multizone monitor provides the versatility and flexibility needed to suit applications where temperature monitoring from more than one input with relay switching outputs, and/or retransmission (optional), is required.


The TP488-RT display will cycle through the active channels showing the channel number and the value. The cycling rate can be configured via a software function.

All calibration and setting up is achieved by user pushbuttons, using easy to follow messages on the display. Programming functions include decimal point, digital filter, relay setpoint parameters, number of input channels, calibration and scaling.

The TP488-RT accepts Pt100 RTD, Pt1000 RTD, Ni250 RTD, 10W copper RTD and LM335 semiconductor temperature sensors. Each input may be individually calibrated and the instrument retains the calibration values in non volatile memory.

A programmable digital filter improves stability by smoothing out short term interference. The setpoint relays may be individually configured for setpoint level, hysteresis, high and/or low alarm, relay trip delay, normally open or normally closed operation.

Individual relays may be allocated to any input channel or a number of channels. Flexible programming allows the user to select the number of inputs and outputs required. The instrument will only scan the selected active inputs.

Optional outputs include isolated analog or serial retransmission. A data logging option is available (all active channels logged) with logged data being downloaded via the serial output option.
