Sensor Technology - The MCT460-T
is a true stand-alone NIR Transmitter in a IP67 cast aluminum
enclosure. A single, proprietary circuit board drives the
measurement along with all analog and digital communication.
Includes 4-20 mA, 0-10 volts, RS-232/485 or network interfaces
such as Ethernet, Profibus, etc. There is no requirement for
any intermediary electronics.
MCT 460-T System -
The MCT460-T can be configured to connect
directly to an Operator Interface. The Operator Interface
will power the MCT 460-T Transmitter. All analog, digital
and field bus information is generated by the operator interface.
Wide Spectrum Referencing
- The MCT460-T incorporates a unique
reference filter to monitor the tobacco reflectance properties
across the complete near infrared (NIR) spectrum. The filter
minimizes the influence of tobacco color, blend or type on
the Transmitter’s reading.
Measurement Speed -
A proven, reliable high speed filter wheel assembly is combined
with a state-of-the-art proprietary single detector optical
system. This fast sampling technique reduces measurement noise
and produces an accurate and repeatable on-line signal. The
filter wheel speed is optimized and adjustable through software.
Product Temperature Monitor
- The MCT460-T can be configured to monitor and display tobacco
temperature in Fahrenheit or Centigrade. The temperature sensor
is contained in the MCT460-T enclosure. No additional hardware
or wiring is required.
Cooling Panel & Air Purge
- Included as a standard part of the MCT460-T
