METTLER TOLEDO launches the worlds first head mounted transmitter for analytical measurements

Compact, head mount temperature transmitters have been a common sight in chemical plants for decades.

Online PR News – 07-November-2013 – Greifensee, Zurich – Compact, head mount temperature transmitters have been a common sight in chemical plants for decades. Calibration of analytical sensors requires a transmitter with keys and a display, which has prevented the head mount concept being used for pH/ORP, conductivity, and oxygen sensors. With the new M100, METTLER TOLEDO has defied this convention.

The average production facility contains hundreds or even thousands of field instruments, of which most are of the "fit and forget" type. They go unnoticed due to their inconspicuous design and absence of local human machine interface. Analytical sensors, on the other hand, have not followed this trend and continue to require a transmitter large enough to include keys and a display due to their frequent need for calibration. Based on a compact, head mount design, METTLER TOLEDO has, with its new M100 transmitter, circumvented the conventional approach.

The combined head mount transmitter / sensor concept applied to analytical parameters has been made possible due to METTLER TOLEDO's Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) technology. ISM enables sensors to be calibrated away from the process in a convenient location such as a workshop. Calibrated sensors can then be swapped quickly in the field. This feature, called Plug and Measure, means measurement point start up is fast and error-free, and can be accomplished without complicated routines. Because of Plug and Measure, the M100 does not require a local operator interface.

The M100 2-wire transmitter series is designed for use throughout the process industries and is certified intrinsically safe for installation in hazardous areas. In addition, online sensor diagnostic tools enable predictive maintenance, helping to ensure maximum plant uptime, measurement point reliability, and process efficiency and safety.

With this new approach METTLER TOLEDO provides a unique transmitter solution for pH / ORP, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen measurement.
