Inor goes wireless

June 2018 Industrial Wireless

Inor, a leading manufacturer of industrial process instrumentation for temperature measurement, has introduced a completely new way of configuring and monitoring transmitters. By integrating the wireless technologies of NFC and Bluetooth, Inor enables communication with the transmitter via a smartphone or tablet without needing to remove the device from the process.

The transmitter can easily be configured through the intuitive interface of the ‘Inor Connect’ app, which offers, among other things a feature that makes it possible to copy a configuration to multiple transmitters. There is also a monitoring feature to facilitate troubleshooting.

The new concept is launched together with the IPAQ 530, the first temperature transmitter with built-in NFC and with support for Bluetooth via the Icon-BT modem. It is also equipped with the latest HART 7 version for extended diagnostics. The IPAQ 530 is a modern, universal transmitter available both in head and rail-mount versions, and with ATEX and IECEx approval. It is designed to meet the highest standards of flexibility, accuracy and reliability.

The IPAQ 530 is the latest advance in the company’s new industrial platform of previously launched products such as IPAQ 202 and IPAQ 330. “Using technologies like NFC and Bluetooth, Inor is driving the process industry towards digitalisation and a wireless future,” concludes CEO Benny Björkander.
