BURNABY, British Columbia, Canada, May 20, 2011 — Photon Control Inc. has launched the PowerTemp series to provide accurate and reliable measurement tools for the power industry. The series comprises compact multi- and single-channel temperature transmitters that provide accurate and reliable temperature measurement of critical components to maximize life expectancy and avoid catastrophic failure of transformers, generators, switch gears and high-voltage connectors. The system is fast, accurate and robust. The multichannel temperature transmitter is suitable for multipoint temperature measurement applications and enables measurement in high-voltage, high-radio-frequency and high-electromagnetic-interference environments, when using compatible FluoTemp temperature sensor probes. The standard system configuration comes with six channels and is expandable to 250. Temperature measurement accuracy is ±1 °C, with digital resolution of 0.1 °C. A sampling measurement of 1 Hz ensures accurate measurement. The transmitter is well suited for temperature monitoring of vacuum breaker strips and transformer winding hot spots. The single-channel transmitter is suitable for OEM applications within the power industry because it provides a wide measuring range in a compact size. For OEM customers, the company uses a partnership approach to tailor its solutions and manufacturing processes to match the requirements of the end use application.
