RT376 Rotary Temperature Transmitter (853-001)

RT376 Rotary Temperature Transmitter (853-001)

The RT376 is a six-channel temperature measurement system designed to monitor temperature on heated godet roll shells. The system features a linear 4-20mA output from the controller interface for use with standard process controllers. Error detection modes protect the heater from damage and expedite troubleshooting in the event of a sensor or other failure. Digital circuitry from sensor input to signal output and generous clearance between the rotating and stationary components make the RT376 a robust and reliable element in the temperature feedback loop.





















1. Remove RT376 rotor module (“RT406”) from the rotor base.

2. Slide the RT376 rotor base on to the shaft until it stops. Secure with provided M6 socket head cap screws & hi-collar lock washers.

3. Attach ring lugs from the RTD sensor to RT376 rotor module (“RT406”) terminals and tighten securely. (See diagram below.)

4. Attach RT376 rotor module (“RT406”) onto the rotor base. Use Loctite Threadlocker 222MS or equivalent.

5. Mount stationary housing assembly to motor with M6 hardware provided.

6. Connect the stator to the RT376C interface using the cable provided.

7. Secure the interface cable to the stator using the cable tie provided.

8. Refer to the Wiring Code and diagrams below for connecting the heater control system to the RT376C signal output terminals.

Stator Wiring Code

Terminal 1: Supply voltage (+Vp) (+12 VDC nominal) (red)

Terminal 2: Supply Voltage low (Common) (black)

Terminal 3: Speed output (not used)

Stator to RT376C Controller Interface Connections

+Vp to Stator Terminal 1 (red)

Com to Stator Terminal 2 (black) Spd Not used

Shld (this is the shield wire of the stator to controller interface cable. The shield only connects at the controller interface end. i.e. no connection at the stator.)


There are 3 Lights on the RT376C Controller Interface front panel. They are labeled “Power”, “Data” and “RTDs”. When the Lights are on solid, there is no error indicated. When they are flashing an error has been detected as described below:






If the status lights do not agree with conditions listed above, remove power to the RT302C for 5 seconds, and then restore power (to reset the digital circuitry).
