8-Channel Wireless Temperature Measurement Module

Stamford CT, USA — Omega introduces the OM-WLS-TEMP series of wireless USB 2.0 full-speed temperature input module (fully compatible with both USB 1.1 and 2.0).

The CE-compliant OM-WLS-TEMP provides 8 differential input channels that are software programmable for different sensor types including:

??? Thermocouple Types J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N
??? RTD???2, 3 or 4-wire Pt100 RTDs
??? Thermistors???2, 3 or 4-wire measurements
??? Semiconductor temperature sensors???LM36 or equivalent

The OM-WLS-TEMP provides a 24-bit analog-to-digital (A/D) converter for each pair of differential analog input channels. Each pair of differential inputs constitutes a channel pair.

A different type of sensor (i.e., thermocouple, RTD, thermistor or semiconductor) can be connected to each channel pair, however both channels in the channel pair need to be the same sensor type (although if thermocouples are connected it is possible to mix thermocouple types).

The OM-WLS-TEMP provides two integrated cold junction compensation (CJC) sensors for thermocouple measurements and built-in current excitation sources for resistive sensor measurements, an open thermocouple detection feature allows detection of a broken thermocouple.

An onboard microprocessor automatically linearizes the measurement data.

The OM-WLS-TEMP features 8 independent temperature alarms. Each alarm controls an associated digital I/O channel as an alarm output. The input to each alarm is one of the temperature channel inputs. The output of each alarm is software configurable as active high or low.

The OM-WLS-TEMP can be operated as a standalone plug-and-play USB device or as a remote wireless device with a range of up to 46 (150 ft) indoors and 732 m (2400 ft) outdoors.

The OM-WLS-TEMP modules ship with an impressive array of software, including the new TracerDAQ??, a full-featured, out-of-the-box data logging, viewing, and analysis application.

Driver support and detailed example programs are included for Universal Library programming libraries for Microsoft?? Visual Studio?? programming languages, and other languages, including

  • DASYLab??, and
  • ULx for NI LabVIEW?? (comprehensive library of VIs and example programs compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit LabVIEW v8.5 through 2012) and
  • InstaCalTM installation, calibration and test utility-powerful solutions for programmers and nonprogrammers alike.

These modules operate under Microsoft Windows?? XP (32-bit only) and VISTA/7/8 (32-bit and 64-bit) operating systems.

The OM-WLS-TEMP devices are ideal for monitor process temperature in industrial or laboratory setting.

Price Starts at $829

Note: Comes complete with a 2 m (6′) USB cable, 100 to 240 Vac ac adapter with USA plug, Quick Start Guide, Tracer DAQ software, and operator???s manual on CD.
