Various Models for Specific Applications

Choose the EE300Ex model that suits your measurement task:

Humidity and Temperature

The EE300Ex-HT measures reliably in the range 0…100% RH and -40…180°C (-40...356 °F) at process pressure between 0.01 and 300 bar (4351 psi). The remote probe version is certified for T6 class.

Moisture in Oil

EE300Ex is ideal for monitoring of moisture in insulation, lubrication, hydraulic and other oils, as well as in diesel fuel. It measures directly water activity (aw) and T and calculates the absolute moisture content (x) in ppm. 

Datasheet EE300Ex-HT

Temperature

EE300Ex-xT measures accurately the temperature in the range -70…200°C (-94...392 °F) and is pressure rated up to 20 bar (290 psi).

Easy Installation

The Two-Part Enclosure

The stainless steel enclosure consists of a connection and measurement unit. This simplifies considerably the installation of the transmitter and allows for easy replacement of the measurement unit – for calibration or service purposes– without time-consuming re-wiring.

EE300EX employs the 2-wire technology and must be loop-powered by an intrinsically safe supply unit. The two 4...20 mA outputs can be easily configured by the user.
