Bristol Babcock Announces the 3808 MVT Multivariable Smart Transmitter

October 172003
Watertown, CT, October 16, 2003 Bristol Babcock announces availability of the 3808 MVT multivariable, smart transmitter. Featuring extremely low power consumption, the 3808 MVT provides network communication as well as very accurate measurement of differential pressure, static pressure and process temperature.

The 3808 MVT has been designed with remote site management in mind. Installations such as well sites and natural gas metering stations often use battery and solar power systems. The low current draw of the 3808 MVT, less than 2 mA in most applications, translates to considerable savings in purchase costs of those power systems.

Remote sites also add a level of complexity to installation and start-up. Consolidating the functions of several instruments into one not only results in significant savings in purchase cost but also eases logistics and saves on installation costs.

Other key 3808 MVT features and benefits are:

- Industry best measurement of all three variables, 0.075% reference accuracy

- Two-wire networking simplifies wiring

- Bilingual communication using both BSAP and Modbus protocols is compatible with practically all controllers, RTU products and SCADA systems

- Calibration and configuration are performed via web pagesno proprietary hand held terminals or PC software are necessary

- Operates in hazardous areas with both explosion proof and intrinsically safe systems
