The Barix Temperature Sensor for intelligent climate control. Encapsulated 1-Wire temperature sensor for home automation, industrial and control applications.
- Temperature control (heating, climate, food- and stock cooling)
- Alarm applications (server racks and rooms)
- Temperature logging (long-time protocols)
- Quality control (industry, medicine, food manufacturing)
Barix TS is an encapsulated 1-wire temperature sensor for home
automation, commercial control and monitoring applications.
Using the industry standard Dallas 1-wire over 2-wire with "parasite power" the sensor can be attached to 1-wire capable controllers.
The Barix TS temperature sensor can be used in a wide range of
measuring, control and monitoring application fields:
- temp.control (heating, air conditioning, food and stock cooling)
- monitoring and alarming (server cabinets and rooms)
- temperature data logging (long time analysis)
- production quality control (industrial, medical, food processing)
Using the Dallas 1-wire bus architecture installers can reduce costs when multiple measuring points in a single room have to be connected as a cable with two wires is sufficient.
For central temperature control of several rooms or buildings Barix
offers the Barionet X8 extension unit which converts the 1-wire bus
to an RS-485 bus using the industry standard Modbus/RTU protocol. The RS-485 bus needs a 4-wire cable, carries power to the Barionet X8 extension units eliminating the need of a local power supply, and can
be connected to a standard Modbus controller.
Using a Barix Barionet as the Modbus controller, the Barionet X8 can be controlled by a local Basic application (BCL) as well as remotely using TCP, UDP, Modbus/TCP and SNMP and allows reading of all sensors using a standard web browser.
Each Barionet X8 can read up to 16 Barix TS temperature sensors and up to 31 Barix Barionet extension units can be directly connected to a Modbus Master and can be increased to up to 250 devices using standard RS-485 repeaters. This gives a total amount of 496 sensors or a total of 4000 sensors when using repeaters.
