For temperature indication with integrated control and alarm functions. Designed for use where the point of measurement (the well or pocket) is not easily viewed by personnel requiring separate or remote indication.
AKM bellows measurement with reset-able maximum pointer
Up to 6 fully independent and user adjustable switches (contacts) for control and alarms.
Switches can be specified by switch type, hysteresis range, and set point, without limitation of sequential set points.
6 inch (150 mm) dial face with an angular dial span of 260° for maximum ease of measurement interpretation.
Built in spring loaded pointer for switch field testing
Improved connection ease with a greater number cable glands; 3 x M25 style and 2 x M20 style
New and improved swing out case design allows for easy cable connection, switch configuration and testing without removal of the cover
Standard switch rated for up to 15 Amps AC and up to 10 Amp DC, switches also available for higher VDC (magnetic blow out, M.B.O.), and switches for milliamp loads
Various analog outputs also available (mA, Pt 100, and Cu 10)
Each switch can be specified with adjustable hysteresis (5 to 25°C)
Non-pressured bellows system better resists leakage when compared to bourdon tube (pressurized) style capillary thermometers
Integrated heating element in bellows for winding temperature indication eliminates extra cost and complexity of accessories to simulate the winding
AKM bellows system provides a 260° dial deflection (angle the pointer travels from minimum to maximum) making it easier to interpret temperature reading from a distance
Same installation footprint and mounting options as the previous generation AKM 345
Improved wiring installation with addition of 2 cable glands (for a total of 5) and an increase in size to 3 x M25 and 2 x M20 versus the previous generation
Wide range of options allow for standard use of one thermometer series across a wide array of applications and operating conditions
Extreme temperature survivability with polar executions for use down to -60°C
Enclosures with IP55 or IP65 rating with numerous mounting configurations available
Up to 6 user adjustable switches with independent switch types
Mounting style, tank connection style, probe length, capillary (length, material, protective housing), compatible well (pocket)
SCADA outputs (0-1mA, 4-20mA, Pt 100, and Cu 10), analog and digital remote indicators
