This, your standard Sigma 9270—cumbersome metal wrapped around an awkward and elongated shape nearly a foot long, and almost half as high, 10 VDC for an input signal, and outdated power supplies—this all before diving into the cosmetic faults inherent in decades-old analog technology such as this. Take a look at the display plate—that could easily give off three different readings when judged from three different angles. The needle marker is dubious at best, and like all analogs, prone to silent deaths without warning—which is how we have preventable disasters like Fukushima. Back panel wiring here looks hectic, disorganized, and hard to replicate—but it doesn’t have to be. Not with Otek instrumentation.
Capitalizing on our President and Owner’s 40 year love affair with the current loop, Otek has pioneered an innovative turn in panel meter technology, with our NTM series (New Technology Meters), from which springs our Plug & Play ideology. Our technology may be advanced, but our philosophy is rather simple: we believe replacing obsolete analogs should be as easy as removing the meter and installing an NTM with nothing more laborious than wire by wire replacement. Hence the name Plug & Play. No prolonged outages or lengthy installation shutdowns, no soaring expenses such as with flat panel installations, and only minimal training for your I & C operators. We do all the hard work so all you have to do is wire in the future of DPM technology.
From our New Technology Series, Otek proudly offers the NTM-B as a 100% Form, Fit, and Function replacement for the Sigma 9270 for Class1E safety related and nuclear qualified applications, as well as the ability to satisfy Mil-Specs 461, 167-1, 810F, 901C, and IEEE-34 respectively. The NTM-B is also cyber security compliant with NEI 08-09 regulation—potentially saving you millions in compliance costs.
Like the 9270, the NTM-B is a vertical 1/8 DIN unit available in either plastic or metal housing. As a single channel unit it can be either loop, signal, or externally powered and meets industry standards of 3.8 x 1.9 inches. Built with our patented firmware, the NTM-B features rapid response time, and several math functions using polynomials, x-y tables, and log-anti-log functions. Other highlighted features include an automatic tri-color bar graph with intensity control, self diagnostics, an input fail alarm with runtime stamp, isolated serial I/O, USB or RS485 available with Ethernet or flash memory available on externally powered units, over thirty isolated input signals, 4 relay options, a configurable bar direction, and power requirements of only 100mW@5VDC.
As with all of our products here at Otek, the NTM-B is covered by our lifetime warranty and can be designed to a galaxy of consumer-driven customizations. We meld our technology to your applications!
