THERMOCOUPLE TRANSMITTER
(field-configurable)

Functions & Features
• Converts a thermocouple input into an isolated, linearized 4 – 20 mA DC signal
• DIP switch configurable input range
• Cold junction compensation, linearization and burnout
• Monitor terminals
• High-density mounting

MODEL: B3FT–[1][2]

ORDERING INFORMATION
• Code number: B3FT-[1][2]
Specify a code from below for each [1] and [2].
  (e.g. B3FT-1/UL/Q)
