Wireless is rapidly becoming the preferred sensing technology of choice in many commercial
and industrial systems. Wireless sensing can greatly reduce installation costs and more easily
solve geographically and structurally challenging sensing applications. Chromalox now provides
fully integrated Wireless Temperature Sensing Solutions for Heat Trace applications in ordinary
and hazardous areas. Whether you are designing a new heat trace system, expanding an existing
one or need to optimize your process, and you are considering wireless temperature sensing, the
Chromalox IntelliTrace ITLS and ITAS heat trace control panels are an ideal choice.
The Wireless Temperature Sensing components of the Chromalox Heat Trace system include our IntelliTrace ITLS or ITAS Control Panel, which is configured for wireless sensing, and a specified industrial Wireless Transmitter, that is paired with an appropriate temperature sensor. We vigorously field-tested and validated the highest rated and most recognized industrial components available. Full wireless temperature sensing installation details and considerations are found in our
ITLS and ITAS Installation Manual, PK497.
When the wireless temperature sensing feature is selected, our IntelliTrace Control Panel is internally equipped with an industrial-duty WirelessHART™ certified wireless gateway, antenna and the necessary communication accessories. The panel firmware facilitates wired and wireless temperature sensor inputs seamlessly. Our large 10” (250 mm) touchscreen computer HMI
distinguishes wireless circuits from wired ones. Each wireless circuit has its own sensor battery life meter. This provides three levels of remaining battery life so that you may properly plan service before it is needed.
Chromalox has chosen the Rosemount® 248 Wireless Temperature Transmitter, which is an industry standard in the industrial wireless community. This transmitter is WirelessHART™ certified and it may be pipe or structure mounted. The 248 Transmitter is offered in either an aluminum or polymer housing and is available with or without the universal mounting bracket.
We have standardized on an RTD type temperature sensor. See the heat trace temperature sensor table for several heat trace sensor choices.
