Analytical Instrumentation Two-Wire pH/ORP/pIon Transmitter – Model TB82 Series D-NPA-TB82PH_2 General Description • The rugged ABB Type TB82 Series of two-wire pH. Adjustable Damping Damping is helpful in process environments where noise is present. such as: 2 • Automatic Nernstian With Solution Coefficient Temperature compensates the sensor output to standard temperature value of 25º C using the Nernst equation and a solution coefficient Ion Concentration Converts a pIon sensor output to concentration units such as parts per million or parts per billion Analog pulse diagnostic output: Impresses 0. the Advanced mode offers an expanded feature set for more complex operations. Setup. The user-friendly interface provides for straightforward transmitter configuration and calibration. the user has the option to hold the analog output at a defined level. A unique secondary display clearly defines each menu option when programming the transmitters. It is a capacitive type lag where reaction to any signal change is slowed according to the entered time constant. the secondary display may be configured to show process temperature. current output. During normal operation. IP65. FM. If necessary. This allows for easy. and Configure. Sensor Compatibility The TB82PH transmitter accepts ABB pH. The Type TB82 series transmitters meet current CE. immediate troubleshooting. Programmable Security Code The transmitter has a three-digit security code to prevent unauthorized modifications that may be applied to any combination of the following menus: Calibration. Security. Easy to follow instructions appear above each Smart Key. Transmitters equipped with FOUNDATION fieldbus or PROFIBUS PA send a complete diagnostic description over the network to the controller. ORP (REDOX). the TB82 may be easily reset back to a factory calibration. ATEX and FISCO requirements. . maintenance and operation in the field is simple. Calibration In addition to the traditional two-point calibration.16 to 16 mA pulse on the 4 to 20 mA output to alert operator of a fault condition Diagnostics The transmitter constantly monitors both itself and the sensor to ensure reliability and accuracy. and pulp & paper to water & wastewater treatment. PROFIBUS PA (PA) or HART. • The TB82 Series is available with traditional programmable outputs or with advanced digital communications utilizing FOUNDATION fieldbus (FF). pIon transmitter is designed for a broad range of industries from chemical. the TB82 features a simple one-point process calibration to adjust for offsets that may occur when the sensor is in process. Basic or Advanced Programming Modes (FOUNDATION fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA models available in Advanced mode only) Available with either Basic or Advanced programming modes at time of purchase. Output/Hold. oxidation/reduction potential (ORP) and ion-selective (pIon) sensors in addition to most competitors. The FAULT icon remains active until problem has been resolved. power. Upon detection of a diagnostic condition. Pressing FAULT info on the transmitter provides a short description and fault codes on the secondary display. the response to a step input change reaches approximately 63 percent of its final value in five seconds for five seconds of damping. NEMA 4X. mV or software revision depending upon configuration. For example. When initiating a two-point calibration. Sensor faults that active the diagnostic notification are: • Broken glass electrode • High reference impedance • Shorted or damaged cable • Open cable • Sensor is not in contact with solution • Shorted or open temperature compensator • Ground loop Some diagnostics functions require the use of pH sensors with solution ground rods such as the ABB TBX5 series sensors. CSA. the transmitter provides diagnostic notification by flashing FAULT on the display and supplying a pulse on the analog output (if activated on HART and non-HART devices).
