The TruCell®2 sensor is a near-infrared light absorption sensor that comprises a sensor probe, selectable from a variety of configurations, a cable, and a transmitter. The transmitter integrates the signal processing, power con-version, 4-20 mA output signal generation, and user interface functions in one package.
The sensor probe includes the main shaft, the sensor head, and the electrical connector that is connected to the transmitter using a cable (6 ft [1.83 m] or 10 ft long [3.05 m]). For a given transmitter, the sensor probe can be replaced. The sensor probe can be separated from the cable and transmitter for sterilization.
There are two levels of access (operator and technician). The access level setting determines whether both, neither, or only the technician level require using a password to log into the transmitter. Only the technician level has access to setup menus.
The transmitter offers automatic recognition of up to twelve (12) TruCell2 probes, and stores the initial calibration data for each probe. Diagnostics such as the “laser test” or “probe health test” warn the user of an aging or failed TruCell2 probe.
All transmitter and probe configuration settings are recovered automatically from non-volatile EEPROM when power is restored after a power failure.
