1.5.1 General Description
The UWIR-2A-NEMA, and UWIR-2A-NEMA-HT Wireless Infrared Transmitter
provides non-contact temperature measurement for industrial applications. The
unit measures a temperature range of -18 to 538°C (0 to 1000°F). The miniature
sensor head design at 2.5 Dia x 6.3 cm L (1 x 2.5") is ideal for measuring
temperature in confined, and hard to reach
places. The aluminum sensor head, as well
as the rugged electronic housing, are NEMA
4 rated. The sensor head is connected to the
electronic housing via a 1.82 m (6') shielded
cable.
The UWIR-2A-NEMA is offered in a high
temperature model which allows for
operating temperature of 0 to 85°C, as
opposed for the standard 0 to 70°C.

3.2 Ambient Temperature
The Sensing head can operate in an ambient temperature of 0 to 70°C (32 to
158°F). The Sensing head in the high temperature model (-HT) can operate in
an ambient temperature of 0 to 85°C (32 to 185°F) without any cooling required.
The Sensing head can operate up to 200°C (392°F) using the water cool jacket
accessory OS100-WC (See Figure 3-5, page 3-3). There is a warm up period of 3
minutes after power up. After the warm up period, temperature measurement
can be made. When the ambient temperature around the sensor head changes
abruptly, the sensor head goes through thermal shock. It takes a certain amount
of time for the sensor head to stabilize to the new ambient temperature. For
example, it takes about 30 minutes for the sensor head to stabilize going from
25° to 50°C (77 to 122°F) ambient temperature. The sensor head dimensions are
shown in Figure 3-2.

6.1.2 Configure Your End Device
Now that you have connected your USB cable to your PC and transmitter
you will complete the following steps to configure your End Device before
placing the unit into operation. You will be using the configuration software
utility that you installed onto your PC in Section 5. If you have not installed the
configuration software utility you should do so now. During this procedure
you will be setting the following parameters in your transmitter.
6.1.3 Button Operation
(1.) “PRESS ON/OFF”
The “PRESS ON/OFF” button on the front of your connector/transmitter is used
to turn your unit “ON” or “OFF”
(2.) “PRESS SETUP”
The “PRESS SETUP” button on the front of your connector/transmitter is only
used during the setup and configuration of your unit.
6.1.4 Indicator Lights
(1) Transmit (TX) Green Indicator Light
The green indicator light marked “TX” on the front of the connector/transmitter
will blink every time the unit sends data to the receiving unit. Example: If you
selected a 5 sec sample rate the green TX led will blink one time every 5 seconds.
(2) Low Battery (Low Bat) Red Indicator Light
The red indicator light marked “Low Bat” on the front of the connector/
transmitter will turn on when the battery reaches a level at or below the power
level required for normal operation. When this indicator turns on it’s time
to install a fresh battery in your unit. For procedures on how to change your

Channel Number
This sets a unique address number into your transmitter. Later, when you set
up your measurement software you will again set channel numbers to receive
readings from the corresponding unit(s). Each unit must be set for a different
channel number for your system to operate correctly.
NOTE:
If you will be using more than one receiver unit in your area
it is important to set the transmitter address numbers to be a
corresponding number in your TC-Central software.
Example Rate
For the first receiver: Set the channels on your transmitters
to 101, 102, 103, 104, etc. Then set the channels in your
TC-Central user software to match.
For the second receiver: Set the channels on your transmitters
to 201, 202, 203, 204, etc.
Then set the channels in your TC-Central user software to
match.
This numbering scheme can be expanded to match the
number of receivers you are using.
Sample Rate
This will program your End Device to transmit 1 data reading to your receiver
at a specified time interval. Available settings are 2, 3, 5, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 or 90
seconds
NOTE:
The sample rate you set will have the most direct effect on the
life of the battery in your End Device. It is recommended that
you set the longest sample time that your application can live
with to extend time between battery replacement. See Section
6.3 for more information on battery

When mounting your end device, care should be taken to make sure it is as far
away from any metal objects. If nearby metal gets too close to your unit, it has
the potential to interfere with the way the unit radiates and may cause signal
loss or possibly even the inability to communicate at all with your receiver.
6.2.2 Installation
When installing your End Device it is important to position your device in such
a way as to optimize the antenna location within what’s known as the “Fresnel
Zone”.
The Fresnel Zone can be thought of as a football-shaped invisible tunnel between
two locations that provides a path for RF signals between your End Device and
your receiver.
FRESNEL ZONE
RECEIVER
ANTENNA
END DEVICE
Figure 6-11. Fresnel Zone
In order to achieve maximum range, the football-shaped path in which radio
waves travel must be free of all obstructions. Obstacles in the path (especially
metal) will decrease the communication range between your End Device and
receiver. Also, If the antennas are mounted just barely off the ground, over half
6-7
End Device Operation
6
of the Fresnel zone ends up being obstructed by the earth resulting in significant
reduction in range. To avoid this problem, the antennas should be mounted high
enough off of the ground so that the earth does not interfere with the central
diameter of the Fresnel zone.
NOTE:
It is important to understand that the environment may
change over time due to new equipment or machinery being
installed, building construction, etc. If new obstacles exist
between your End Device and receiver, the devices can be
raised on one end or on both ends to hopefully clear the
Fresnel Zone of obstructions.
NOTE:
No co-location with other radio transmitters is allowed. By
definition, co-location is when another radio device or the
device’s antenna is located within 20 cm of your connector/
transmitter and can transmit simultaneously with your unit.
NOTE:
Never install multiple End Devices within 20 cm or less from
each other.
NOTE:
Never use your UWIR End Device as a portable device.
Your unit has been designed to be operated in a permanent
installation only.
6.2.3 Antenna Connection
Your End Device has been shipped to you with a standard approved antenna.
NOTE:
Use of any other antenna then what’s supplied with your End
Device will void all FCC, IC and CE regulatory compliance.

End Device Operation
In some cases, a short RF cable may be used to connect an antenna to your end
device. Please note that RF extension cables will always add some loss to the
transmitting signal strength. The longer the cable, the more signal will be lost
over that cable. Because of this, the length of the cable should be kept as short as
possible.
6.2.4 DIN Rail Mounting Bracket Installation
To install the DIN Rail Mounting Bracket accessory (UWM-DINRAIL) you must
first remove the one screw located on the lid of the enclosure. This will allow
you access to the mounting holes.
Place all four #4-40 screws with threaded standoffs into each mounting hole.
Screw on the DIN Rail Mounting Bracket sub assembly to the bottom of the

Section 7 - System Operation
7.1 Introduction
Compared to wired systems, a wireless system provides much simpler
installation. Based on the physical principle of the propagation of radio
waves, certain basic conditions should be observed. The following simple
recommendations are provided to ensure proper installation and correct
operation of your wireless system.
7.2 RF Communication Basics
The Model UWIR-2A-NEMA and UWIR-2A-NEMA-HT sends wireless
transmissions to a receiver. The receiver checks the incoming data for accuracy
and processes this data for use by the measurement software on your PC. Radio
signals are electromagnetic waves, hence the signal becomes weaker the further
it travels. While radio waves can penetrate some solid materials like a wall, they
are dampened more than when a direct line-of-sight between the transmitting
and receiving antenna exist.
7.3 Basic System Overview
A basic wireless thermocouple system is comprised of only two main
components; a signal conditioner with a built-in battery powered 2.4 GHz radio
transmitter, and a USB powered 2.4 GHz radio receiver.

7.5 Transmit Rate vs. Battery Life
Many factors such as ambient temperature conditions and transmitting rate
can have a large effect on the life of the battery used in your end device.
Transmitting data places a large demand on the battery in your unit. The
transmit rate is the single most contributing factor in the life of your battery. The
slower the transmit rate you set, the longer the battery in your device will last.
The table below gives some estimates on how long the battery should last vs. the
transmit rate you selected when you setup your end device and under normal
operating conditions.
