Gas Sensor Transmitter for Figaro Series TGS and MQ Series Solid State Sensors

  • $99.95


The Model: VP-TX100-SS

The VP-TX-100-SS is the inexpensive alternative to gas detection and environment monitoring. The combination of analog 4-20 mA output and the  RS-485 digital port makes this unit the ideal choice to connect to analog controllers and digital PLC’s. The wide choice of Solid State Gas Sensors provides accurate level readings with a life span of up to 7 years under normal applications.

The on board temperature sensor and optional remote temperature sensor can be read directly from the RS-485 port or with the LCD display.

The user interface consists of a Status LED, three pushbuttons, an audible and a 2 line x 8 character backlit LCD. The Status LED indicates OK, Low, Mid, High and Fault Alarms. The three pushbuttons and LCD provide a convenient calibration method. There are NO potentiometers, all calibration, sensor selection and setup is performed digitally. All variables are stored in the processor’s flash memory.

Sensors, Sockets and Enclosures are sold separately. Please contact us for pricing for assembled and calibrated units at info@vpprocess.com
