MSA ULTIMA XE gas monitors

January 2009 Vol. 236 No. 1

MSA says its well-proven ULTIMA XE gas monitors with display are now available with Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART) field communications protocol.

HARTprovides two-way digital communication between intelligent field instruments and host systems. Increased sensor data as well as convenient set-up, calibration and diagnostics can be offered for better management of plant assets. HART features two simultaneous communication channels: the 4-20 mA analog signal and a digital signal, enabling the user to perform set-up, calibration and diagnostics from any point along the 4-20 mA line.

With ULTIMA XE gas monitors the user has multiple calibration options: the handheld HART communicator, a laptop which communicates via dedicated HART software and the ULTIMA controller or calibrator. 800-672-2222 , www.msa-europe.com.
