Data Translation has released the DT9872, an RTD version of the TEMPpoint temperature measurement instrument product line, in a compact, rugged 2U rack-mountable enclosure. The PC-based instrument, designed for high accuracy and industrial robustness, allows direct RTD measurements with a PC.

The DT9872 requires virtually no warm-up time, delivering eco-friendly applications for WiMAX, semiconductor testing and bio-analytical products. The temperature measurement device offers precision and productivity with 48, 4-wire RTD inputs with Kelvin sensing to eliminate measurement errors. Users can easily attach Platinum 100 (Pt100), Platinum 500 (Pt500), or Platinum 1,000 (Pt1000) RTD's and mix and match these with voltage inputs.

In addition, the DT9872 provides 1,000V channel-to-channel isolation, virtually creating 48 separate instruments but all in one small box. The instrument offers 8 opto-isolated digital input and output lines for monitoring, control and driving relays and supports a broad RTD temperature range of -200C to 850C. It delivers simultaneous throughput across all channels at rates up to 7.5Hz/channel and "anytime" auto-calibration for guaranteed accuracy.

The TEMPpoint application software enables customers to utilize the full functionality of the instrument. The TEMPpoint application is complete with a chart recorder to view, analyze and save all 48 channels as well as export directly to Microsoft Excel. It is an executable program created with Measure Foundry that can be easily modified or expanded to meet a particular need.

Thermocouple and voltage models for USB and Ethernet (LXI) are also available.

The DT9872 for RTD inputs is priced at $7,995. Devices will ship starting February.
