Overview

The Luxtron® m924 utility module is one board that contains four fiber optic temperature sensing channels, RS232 ASCII and RS485 Modbus digital outputs, and 5 to 24 VDC power input connection. The m924 board conditions the measurement signal from Fluoroptic® probes and reports to the OEM control system. The custom non-metallic probe sensors are safe in harsh environments and connect to the m924 board via robust fiber optics.

The m924 is a guaranteed backward compatible module when using Luxtron Fiber Optic DipTip and quality probes, extension cables, and tank wall plates.
