PRODUCT FOCUS

800/810 Series Pressure Switch/Transmitters
Provide Indicating, Switching, and Analog Output - All In One Instrument

Now Available With
THREE Switching
Output Options
800-810 Series Pressure Switch/Transmitters

NOSHOK’s new 800/810 Series Electronic Indicating Pressure Switch/Transmitters provide continuous pressure monitoring and allow the programming of set points without pressurizing.

These switches offer two switching outputs, one switching output and an analog (4-20mA or 0-10 Vdc) output, and now they are also available with two switching outputs and an analog transducer output (4-20mA).  Two buttons allow easy adjustment of the set points, contact functions (normally open/normally closed), reset points, contact types (npn/pnp) and switching function (hysteresis/gate).  

Other features include integrated password protection, and a  higher maximum pressure than anything comparable on the market (9999 psi). The 800/810’s convenient 330 rotatable indicator head and optional turntable process connection provide ease of installation and wiring. By using proven ceramic or thin film sensors, these pressure switches deliver an extremely high level of repeatability and durability, and they also carry NOSHOK’s exclusive 3-year warranty.

850 Series Indicating Temperature Switch/Transmitters
Delivers Precise Temperature Indication & Control

850 Series Indicating Temperature Switch/Transmitter

Designed for precise control in crucial temperature applications, the 850 Series Electronic Temperature Switch/Transmitter utilizes PT100 technology to provide continuous temperature monitoring, electronic switching, and transmission of analog output (4-20 mA) while providing local digital indication. 

Two buttons on top allow simple adjustment of the temperature set points, reset points, switching functions and the measuring range of the optional analog output. These extensive features and wide measuring range (between -300°F and 1100°F/ -200°C and 600°C) cover the majority of temperature measuring and switching tasks.  A variety of stem lengths, which are also available with adjustable insertion lengths, add to the versatility of the 850 Series. All wetted parts as well as the housing are made of stainless steel for corrosion protection and durability. This is a durable, cost-effective and easy-to-integrate product.

FOR FRICTION CLUTCH
TESTING ON CHAIN HOISTS

Hoist

CHTK Chain Hoist Test Kit

CHTK Chain Hoist Test

NOSHOK’s CHTK is a precise, durable and dependable tester for chain hoist clutches. The kit provides a wide range of measurement, with high accuracy, low weight and ease of use. To perform the test, the force transducer is inserted onto the chain, travels upwards with it against the base of the chain hoist and thereby blocks the chain. The display unit allows you to read the load at which the friction clutch stalls.

The CHTK consists of a force transducer with integrated handle and a display unit. Two chain adapters and three centering sleeves are also included, to ensure compatibility with most types of chain hoists in the specified load range. The large illuminated graphic display makes it easy for the user to read the measured values. Optionally, 99 unique data sets can be stored & transferred via an infrared interface to a PC.  The CHTK’s special feature is the single sensor concept for the entire load range.

621/622 Transmitter Is A Rugged, Reliable Solution To Well Automation

ALSO IDEAL FOR APPLICATIONS
SUCH AS:

* Upstream Oil & Gas
* Offshore
* Gas Pipeline & Compression
* Marine
* Industrial

850 Series Indicating Temperature Switch/Transmitter

Hazardous Environments require highly reliable, rugged instrumentation, especially when it comes to pressure monitoring in a remote environment like oil wellheads. NOSHOK provides a safe, reliable, rugged solution with our 621/622 Series Explosion-Proof Transmitters, and we back them with our exclusive 3-Year Warranty.

These sensors provide consistently accurate and stable output, stand up to extremely harsh environments, and endure the test of time. The 621/622 Series Transmitters are engineered to the most stringent quality standards and undergo extensive testing, making them ideal for safe, dependable monitoring of tubing and casing pressures in a wellhead.

With an accuracy of ±25% Full Scale (Best Fit Straight Line), combined with the reliability and long life of diffused semiconductor and sputtered thin film, they deliver outstanding performance and value.  All wetted parts are made of 316 stainless steel and Elgiloy, and are welded with no internal O-rings, gaskets or seals.

Oil WellAvailable in a wide variety of pressure ranges to suit most applications, these transmitters can be specified with a standard threaded connection as well as a flush diaphragm configuration. They are Factory Mutual and CSA Approved to Class 1, Division 1 Explosion Proof, and all models incorporate significant levels of RFI, EMI and ESD protection, and are NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-3:2003 compliant. A low power model is also available.

NOSHOK Engineer Mentors in First Robotics Competition

FRC LogoMichael Lancaster, NOSHOK’s Engineering Manager, is proud to participate as a Mentor in the 2009 FIRST Robotics Competition. This is Mike’s fourth year of serving as a Mentor in this event, and he looks forward to lending his expertise to help his Buckeye Regional Team face the new challenges of this build season.

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique “varsity sport of the mind” designed to encourage high-school-aged people to explore the excitement of science and technology, and experience how rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be.  Teams of young people and their mentors are challenged to build robots using a standard kit of parts and a common set of rules, within a six week timeframe. Once built, they enter the robots in competitions designed by Dean Kamen, Dr. Woodie Flowers, and a committee of engineers and other professionals.

The national competition kicked off on January 3rd: usfirst.org and teams will be working on their projects until February 17th. The 2009 FIRST Robotics Competition Buckeye Regional Competition will take place in Cleveland, OH, on February 26-28th: www.firstbuckeye.org. Visit this link for more info: robotics.nasa.gov

NOSHOK wishes Mike Lancaster and all of the FRC teams a successful and rewarding 2009 FIRST Robotics Competition!

TECH TIP
 
Q: What does RFI, EMI, and ESD mean related to transducers and transmitters?
A:

Radio Frequency Interference, Electromagnetic Interference  and Electrostatic Discharge all refer to the effects electrical noise can have on instruments.  RFI frequently comes from hand held walkie-talkies, and EMI from AC motors in the vicinity of the instrument.

ESD comes from many sources, including the application itself.

CE compliant transmitters and transducers incorporate protection techniques and components to minimize most of the interference.

Please refer to the individual product specifications for protection level details.
